Why I will support Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi in 2019

I want to see India and Indians viewed and received with honour, globally.

I will support Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi in 2019 elections too owing to my following “selfish priorities”:

1) I want to see India continue to emerge stronger and abler. The Prime Minister Modi-led Government has not only extended relative freedom to the Indian armed forces to take action against infiltrators/separatists but has also exhibited decisiveness in making the necessary defence-related purchases at terms favourable to India.

However, I sincerely hope that his team will resolve the much delayed One Rank, One Pension (OROP) to boost the morale of our veterans.

The National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) is one of the boldest initiatives of the Modi government by far and seeks to provide medical insurance cover of Rs.500,000 to 500 million low-income Indians

2) I want to see India as an island of peace in the world with no major social or political upheavals challenging its sovereignty. The Prime Minister’s strong action against all antisocial elements disguised as rogue non-governmental organisations (NGOs), religious bodies, education institutions, etc., gives me tremendous hope.

I hope that his dispensation will continue to tighten the screws upon re-election on such unsavoury elements for they are far more dangerous than they appear.

3) I want to see basic amenities such as clean drinking water, uninterrupted electricity supply, good roads and schools reaching each and every village in our nation. Thanks to the effort made by the Modi Government, India is one of the leading producers of solar power today.

I am heartened to find the pro-poor initiatives of the government such as the Pradhan Mantri Ujjawala Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar (SAUBHAGYA) Yojana and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana well implemented.

I hope that having reached electricity to the last village, the Prime Minister’s team will now set its sights on completing all the other major initiatives in infrastructures, healthcare, defence, and rural and urban development. Here I am a bit concerned because the good policies and projects the BJP are bound to be scrapped if the opposition returns to power. Therefore, 2019 should not be a repeat of 2004.

The National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS) is one of the boldest initiatives of the Modi government by far and seeks to provide medical insurance cover of Rs.500,000 to 500 million low-income Indians. It already cited as the world’s most ambitious public health scheme.

4) I would like to see the government utilise the taxpayer money wisely.

In this regard, Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) to over 300 million new bank accounts opened under the Jan Dhan Yojana has helped to significantly curtail the wastage of taxpayer money by plugging leakages.

However, I further hope that government will continue to come up with more innovative ideas to integrate similar such measures to reduce spillages.

I hope that unfinished items such as the Uniform Civil Code, the scrapping of the Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir, elimination of the tax on Hindu places of worship

5) I want to see India and Indians viewed and received with honour, globally.

Ever since Prime Minister Modi and his team have restored India’s pride across the globe, I have earnestly hoped that he will continue to take the country to ever greater heights.

6) I wish to see the small and medium businesses, jobs market, the education sector and overall economy thrive and create new benchmarks, globally.

Over 40 million loans were disbursed to small and medium entrepreneurs under the Government’s Mudra Yojana with little or no collateral to boost entrepreneurial environment in India.

I also hope that after making business environment more robust through its “one nation, one tax”, the Goods and Services Tax (GST), recovery of bad loans through the means of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) and stringent, but friendly income tax laws, etc., Prime Minister Modi’s Government will be able to introduce several other such schemes to break the growth record.

7) Lastly, I also know Bharat (India) was not built in 5 years, nor was it destroyed in 70 years. It has taken nearly 700 years of religious persecution and colonialism to destroy the spirit of the Nation and that it will take a minimum of 20 years to rebuild it.

Most of the Government schemes are functioning and that is what matters most to me as a taxpayer (Yes, I am a registered tax payee to the Indian Government). It is, therefore, money invested well and not an expenditure.

In conclusion, I hope that unfinished items such as the Uniform Civil Code, the scrapping of the Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir, elimination of the tax on Hindu places of worship, the lop-sided Right to Education Act and other such anti-majority measure are suitably amended or be altogether scrapped over the next few years.

It must be our effort to make the country truly secular. This implies an absence of religion in government and keeping it a strictly private affair and not an instrument that drives appeasement or selective enactment of laws.

  1. Modi is not god that 70 yrs of kacchra will be cleared by him in 4 yrs. We have seen enough of UPA 2 and let there be not a repeatation with 19 party kicchri sarkar. Modi deserves another 5 yrs to deliver, otherwise throw him out thereafter.

  2. The
    Author has no knowledge about India it seems . The illiterates know better than the author . Is it a kind of ad or column ? It’s a total bullshit. The author’s stomach is full . Sometimes I wonder why Pgurus taking chance. Sir I understand that counter views should be allowed but not like this.May be the author is trained by Sambit Parata and Manish tewari of parthenium .In my native district sometime back there was a protest that scst backlogs not filled in courts for long .When I tried to understand the issue found that there are enough ppl to write exams but very less to pass . And the pass criteria is such that it’s the minimum possible . What will admin do ? Should he just give a exemptions from exam itself ?. My point is have some standards instead of no standards for author’s

      • You are right..He is making irrelevant comment to show his stupidity..I mean if you want to counter the views then go ahead with arguments that is relevant to this article instead he tries to defame the author with moot rants.I don’t agree at all that this article is worst..I mean it is though true that Modi Govt. did fail in certain fields like the author pointed out but at the same time author is absolutely correct on the image of India being created over the world as a global leader after N.Modi came to power holds very true..And some policy of the Govt. mentioned here definitely were praise worthy and implemented successfully.Just being an arrogant is not gonna take the credit of these policies helped the common man..Although the author could have written article mentioning facts data and comparison to previous governments policy on which field modi govt. succeed and in which they need to work more which could have been way better but I think it would have been then very lengthy and PGurus might not prefer such articles on the basis of length..

      • Thanks for your comment . It shows that you people are living on some other planet than earth and dont know what is happeining here . May be just now dropped from heaven . Some hardcore Modi chamchas just like old congis . Not a single corruptin case proved or single person punished . Instead honest people punished. May be you idiots with shitheads want me to appreciate you and modi company for this ? I agree with you. Dont you follow Swamiji ?

        • you just don’t have content in your comment. baseless allegations don’t help to change views. The author has very well taken cognizance of Modi’s failures which very well balances the views on both sides… for and against Modi… but you seem to base you comment to degrade any one who is even a bit for modi.

  3. I don’t really understand the details of OROP. But just a little over an year back I read that the present govt has given some benefit to veterans in this regard. But it seems that our retired armed forces veterans are not happy. I am sure this issue can be resolved amicably. There are two points that are worth considering here. One, that a finance minister’s job is not an easy job, trying to allocate resources according to national priorities. Secondly, the IAS lobby in this country considers itself God’s gift to us ‘cattle class’ people. It’s they who have been resisting and continue to resist any other section of society, including armed forces to get as much importance in Indian scheme of priorities. It’s a colonial hang-over still continuing.

  4. Create article comma I agree with you on everything you said. this is the only chance that our country has to elect a true nation loving leader who’s sole aim is to serve India and nothing else.
