Modi's governance reforms have deep social impact: Dr Jitendra

Katra, May 29: Union Minister and BJP National Executive Member Dr Jitendra Singh Sunday said that Prime Minister NarendraModi’s governance reforms have a deep social impact and are aimed at finally achieving the goal of ‘ease of living’ for the common man through ‘ease of governance’.
Addressing the Jammu & Kashmir BJP Working Committee meeting on the party programmes being planned to celebrate the eight successful years of the Modi government, Dr Jitendra Singh recalled that when Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee decided to resign from the Union Cabinet on differences with the then Prime Minister JawaharLal Nehru and launched Bharatiya Jan Sangh, he had told his colleagues in the "VicharParivar" that it was imperative to have a political outfit to be able to seek access to the seat of State authority in order to implement the agenda envisaged by them for independent India. During the last eight years, the Modi-led government, with absolute majority of BJP, had vindicated the purpose, resolve and commitment with which Mookerjee had laid the foundation of this political party, he added.
Dr Jitendra Singh also recalled that it is a divine coincidence that Jammu & Kashmir BJP is holding its Working Committee meeting coinciding with successful completion of eight years of the Modi government in the holy town of Katra- Vaishno Devi, from where NarendraModi had started his LokSabha election campaign after being designated as the Party’s Prime Minister candidate by the BJP.
Dr Jitendra Singh pointed out that while most of the governments take pride in introducing new laws and rules, it was under Prime Minister NarendraModi that over 1,600 such rules and laws had been done away with, which had become obsolete and lost relevance with the passage of time. These, he said, included abolition of practice of getting documents attested by a gazetted officer, abolition of interviews for recruitment to government service and abolition of Pension laws which laid cumbersome conditions on the sanction of Family Pension to the separated/divorced daughters of deceased employees or families of missing employees.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, the hallmark of Modi’s governance model is his capacity to take out-of-box decisions, capacity to break the taboos of the past and the capacity to convert government’s campaign into mass campaign on the basis of his courage, conviction and sincerity. In this regard, he cited Modi’s decisions like "unlocking" the Space sector for private players and making a call for Swachhata campaign during his Independence Day address which instantly turned into a mass campaign and people carried it forward as if it had been initiated by them only.
Dr Jitendra Singh also called upon the party karyakartas to go to people and remove the lingering myths of regional discrimination or injustice to Jammu. He said, the inauguration of the country's tenth Industrial Biotech Park at Kathua yesterday was the latest evidence of this.
In reference to AmritMahotsav, Dr Jitendra Singh referred to Vision@2047 and said that the future roadmap for India @100 has to be determined by the relevant indices at that time and the new parameters based on new factors like "Artificial Intelligence".
