Chennai, May 29: Union Minister of State Dr Jitendra Singh on Monday said that in the last nine years, India had become the world's frontline nation and all this was possible because of personal outreach and vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had emerged as the “world's tallest leader and also raised India's esteem in the international arena”.
Addressing a press conference on the completion of nine years of the government headed by PM Modi, Dr Singh said, “The basic idea was to take the message of developing, path-breaking, reforms and the phenomenal infrastructural development that has taken the country at par with developed nations. All the reforms and schemes were planned with extreme sensitivity with far-reaching impact in mind.”
In order to understand the value and extent of the change, what is required is to compare the times before 2014 and after 2014, the minister said. “In the last nine years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given the country an era of new resurgence. Everybody has to guard against the earlier forms of the government which had seen virtually very little development before 2014. The journey from 2014 brought an end to the pessimism of the earlier era and ushered in a path of optimism for the new India.”
The Centre has taken revolutionary steps for the welfare of poor and marginalised sections of the society, he said, adding, “The country has witnessed all-round development in the last nine years. India is touching new heights on the world stage under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”
The minister also highlighted that India has emerged as the world’s second-largest mobile phone manufacturer. He said Jal Jeevan Mission is envisioned to provide safe and adequate drinking water through individual household tap connections by 2024 to all households in rural India. “Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY) is a scheme launched by the Prime Minister on April 8, 2015, for providing loans up to 10 lakh to non-corporate, non-farm small/micro enterprises. These loans are classified as MUDRA loans under PMMY,” he said.
Dr Singh said PM Modi outlined his 'Panch Pran' targets to make India a developed country by the time it celebrates its 100th Independence Day in 25 years. Citing another example of the importance given to revival of cultural linkages, the minister said, “Modi government was successful in opening the Kartarpur Corridor, connecting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, near Lahore in Pakistan to Gurudwara Dera Baba Nanak, Gurdaspur district, Punjab in India, allowing the Sikh devotees from India to visit the gurdwara in Kartarpur, Pakistan, without a visa.”
