Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had introduced a new culture of work in India in which each of the welfare programs for the poor and the public were designed to achieve the last man in the last queue. caste, creed, religion or voting consideration.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi will always be credited with introducing a new culture of work in India in which each of the social welfare programs for the poor and the public has been designed to reach the most needy or the last man in the the last queue, regardless of cast, creed, religion or vote.Similarly, given the emerging scenario of contemporary India, Modi has consistently boosted startups that should be able to earn their life,” said Jitendra Singh.

Addressing a press conference in Moradabad, Singh said: “Purely objective parameters have been followed to meet the requirement wherever the requirement has not been met in the past and to do justice wherever justice has been denied in the past. This, he said, was quite a departure from the past practice followed by Congress and its allied governments where ballot-banking policy predetermined the selective deployment of the benefits of Prime Minister Modi succeeded in raising the standards of public delivery well above consideration of the vote, based on the principle of justice for all and then left it to the public to decide who they wanted to vote for, and the public also endorsed this approach by returning the Modi government for a second term with a much higher term than in previous elections.”

Citing an example, the Union Minister said, citizen-centered programs like Prime Minister Awas Yojna, Ujjawala Yojna, Sochalaya, etc., reached all households where these amenities were lacking and the authorities never asked what religion or caste the family belongs to or what political party he voted for in the last election. “This new work culture will become a new norm in Indian politics and the masses will expect every political party to follow the same,” he said.

For a short period of eight years, the Center has been able to bring many programs closer to 100% saturation and benefits are granted to deserving individuals following the principle of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas”.

According to the Union Minister, due to game-changing projects like Gareeb Kalyan Anna Yojana, Jan Dhan, Ujjawala, Sauchalaya, PM Aawas, Har Ghar Jal, Har Ghar Bijli and Ayushman, the people of the country have confidence in the country. Modi government time and again in the Center and in most states.

The Minister pointed out that these social measures have lifted millions of people out of the clutches of abject poverty and given them a dignified life.

Dr. Jitendra Singh pointed out that the beneficiaries of these social protection schemes belong to all castes, creeds and religions, as the lists of beneficiaries are drawn up objectively and without any bias, as was the case in the exemptions previous ones.

The minister also added that these programs and other measures such as rural employment programs have transformed the lives of the poorest of the poor and helped raise their standard of living to a level of dignity.

The Minister also underlined that all the benefits reach the needy directly without any leakage through a transparent and efficient distribution mechanism.

Citing the example of the North East region, Singh said that before 2014 the region suffered economically due to the myopic policies of successive central governments, but soon after the Modi government came to power in 2014, the Prime minister said that every effort would be made to bring the North East region on par with the more developed regions of the country.

He said, “Over the past eight years, not only have development gaps been successfully bridged, but the Northeast region has also gained psychological confidence.

He added that a significant development in terms of road, rail and air connectivity is helping to facilitate the movement of goods and people not only in the region but also throughout the country.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said, “Mizoram has always been opposed to the BJP, but without any discrimination, the Modi government has helped establish the Citrus ‘Center of Excellence’ in Mizoram with the help of Israeli technology. The Citrus Center has become a one-of-a-kind institution in India which, although located in Mizoram, caters to the entire North East region.”

He reiterated that due to the impetus given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi which started with his call for “StartUp India StandUp India” from the ramparts of Red Fort in 2015, the number of StartUps in India has risen to 70 000, rising from around 300 to 400 which is something to be cherished by the young people of Uttar Pradesh who want to pursue careers in different start-ups. There are over 100 unicorns in India and biotech startups have shown a rising trend.

The minister said there is a need to raise awareness, especially among young people, of the vast unexplored avenues of StartUps and technology as well as the financial support offered by the government to StartUps.
