Modi Govt’s 100 days marked by historic feats: Nishank
It is generally considered that Governments start taking major decisions ahead of elections about three years after assuming office but for the first time, the Central Government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, took major decisions regarding the law and policy which not only changed the geography of the nation but will also ensure the intended welfare of the citizens. The Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said this while addressing the media here on completion of 100 days by the Modi-led Government.
Outlining the achievements of the Government in the recent months, the Minister said that the multi-pronged nature of decisive action has been a historic phenomenon. He said that the biggest achievement of the Union Government has been the action on the climate of terrorism that was festering for too long. The decision to change the status-quo on Jammu and Kashmir will not only integrate it with India, it will also benefit the people of the region.
The people in the region will now benefit from various welfare schemes of the Government of India. He, further, added that the reputation of the neighbouring nation sponsoring terrorism has been in tatters due to concerted efforts by the Government. Nishank said that the Union government was committed to revolutionise the service delivery to the citizens through Direct Benefit Transfers.
He added that the milestone of providing free gas connections to eight crore beneficiary families was achieved seven months before the deadline. He said that this kind of commitment characterised every action of the Government.
Speaking about the Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram, Pokhriyal said that it had completed a 3,84,000 kilometre journey successfully and it was only in the last mile that it faltered. This, he added, is a stepping stone for further development.
He further appreciated the sensitive gesture of the Prime Minister towards the scientific community of ISRO. The minister elaborated the plans of the Union Government to take higher education in the nation to the next level. He said that the Government is committed to take the IITs and other institutions of national importance in the top tier of the world rankings.
On being questioned about the state of economy he said that ups and downs were not uncommon. However, the Foreign Direct Investment in the first quarter of 2019-20 by 28 per cent compared to the previous year. About Rs 100 lakh crore is to be invested on infrastructural works across the nation.
Regarding the Motor Vehicles (Amendment) Act, he said that the changes will enhance public safety.
On the issues related to the mountain state of Uttarakhand, the minister said that the long pending amount of Rs 2,675 crore was released under the Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority (CAMPA) fund.
