Chief minister Raghubar Das on Friday said the pro-people government at the Center — led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi — was working through a vision and mission and there was nothing stopping this country from becoming a developed nation.
“At a time when global economic meltdown is pushing nations on the brink of bankruptcy, India has maintained its GDP at 7.5 %, which speaks of the development initiatives Modiji has been successfully initiating and executing over the last two years of his tenure,” Das said.
Rajya Sabha MP M Akbar accompanied him at the informal press meet.
The chief minister said, “Evaluate and see how he has worked through a vision and zealous mission bringing overall development in the country.”
The Modi government at the Center will complete two years on May 26 while Das has completed one and half years in office.
Das said, in the last two years, you have not heard of any scams or corruption charges on the Modi government. “This is the greatness of the man who is working 24 X 7 to take the country on the path of becoming a developed nation.”
He counted the success of various social security and development schemes including the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana for aiding farmers during exigencies, banking services reaching villages, Startup India mission, Swachch Bharat Abhiyan, efforts for electrifying villages and Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Yojana.
Stressing on the need for making water available to every field, Das said the Prime Minister had asked every district to prepare district irrigation plans. “I am happy to announce that in Jharkhand 10 districts have already prepared them before the onset of monsoon.”
Jharkhand, he said, had enormous potential to help the country in enhancing its power and food processing sectors. “We are working in coordination with the Centre in fulfilling the PM’s dreams and expectations.”
Enthused by BJP’s victory in Godda by-poll, he attributed the success to PM Modi’s development drive.
Akbar said the poverty elimination motto of the Prime Minister was going to make him more popular in the country. “The country cannot wait another 70 years to bring the 30 % below poverty line (BPL) families into the mainstream. With Modi at the helm, I see it happening in the next few years,” he said.
