Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that 8% plus the growth over the next 30 years will bring the best of the world to India, even as he regretted being questioned for every “wrong” right from the Panchayat level.

He said that advocating accountability at every level to make sure good governance, everyone is responsible for being answerable and held accountable.

In a democracy, he said that people give the elected government a 5 year contract and if they do not perform as per the requirement then in the next election the authority is given to some other political party.

He said our country has always believed that good governance is bad politics. After winning one election, the government keeps thinking how to win the next election. They main focus is on how to increase the political base and the ways to get more votes and thus going forward it collapses.

Addressing his first townhall, Modi stressed upon the requirement for providing grievance redressal system that not only listens to the complaints of citizens, but also redresses them in a time-bound manner.

Modi said in an event to mark two years of the government’s citizen partnership app MyGov that with the rapid and continued the economic growth of over 8% over the next 30 years, we can have whatever best we see in the world.

Modi said with the growth rate of 7.5%, India has become the fastest growing large economy in the world which is credible despite global slowdown and two consecutive years of drought.

The Prime Minister also said that without good governance, the common man will not benefit the government-run schemes.

To bring about a change in the country, last mile delivery of government benefits are as important as rules and regulations,” he said, adding government will lose its goodwill if the benefits of a scheme does not reach the intended beneficiary.

Today if something happens at the Panchayat level, I am asked questions; if something happens at Nagar Panchayat level, I am asked questions; if something happens at zilla parishad, I am asked questions; if something happens at nagar palika, I am asked questions; if something happens at Mahanagar Palika, I am asked questions; if something happens in states, then also reply is sought from the Prime Minister.

 

Politically it is fine, for TRP also it might be fine, but it creates problem for the Prime Minister as per Modi.
