It has been 100 days since PM Narendra Modi & his Government took over the responsibility of Governing our country. The vote for PM Modi was a vote for change, a vote of confidence in his vision & leadership & I am glad that in the first 100 days, the Govt under PM Modi has made the first steps towards a better Government of reconstruction & reviving our Economy!
More than any single thing, the most noticeable change has been a PM & Government that is clearly setting new standards for hard work & commitment. The Government has demonstrated strong intent for reform, pro-activeness to deliver on poll promises like setting up a special investigation team on black money; getting Parliament’s approval for a National Judicial Commission, that were promised in the BJP’s manifesto, & Revitalized the standards of leadership, working aggressively to undo the nightmare of the past.
We must all admit that the country facing serious & challenging times - self created by many years of profligacy & poor governance. The tasks, therefore, for this Government are neither easy nor simple. The problems can only be tackled by decisive governance action & management of the economy. Having inherited an economy that has been left very weak & vulnerable with 12 quarters of successive GDP declines & 24 quarters of inflation growth; the Government’s maiden budget in July has ensured a good first step in the difficult process of rebuilding the economy. PM Modi has created a systemic change & structural reorientation of the government, ensuring greater transparency & accountability.
By scrapping the Planning Commission, abolishing over 21 GoMs (Group of Ministers) & nine EGoMs, creating a process of appraising performances of those in his Government & ensuring a culture of hard work and punctuality in government offices, he has revitalized Government.
The recognition of skill development, sanitation, labour reforms, financial inclusion & women’s safety amongst others bodes well for our country’s future. By proposing a hike in the FDI cap in insurance to 49 percent in Budget, building 100 smart cities and delivering a boost to manufacturing via the ‘Make in India’ slogan during his Independence Day speech, PM Modi has exhibited a steadfast commitment to investments & growth. These are important first steps towards Transformindia!
Transforming our economy into an Investment-based economy will be real hard work which will require formulating good, credible, fair, long-term policies which I am sure PM Modi & his Government will deliver to the nation.
