From the Desk of Dilip Shah

The new Government headed by Shri Narendrabhai Modi has successfully completed the 1st year. We find that number of initiatives and policies announced will bring a structural change in the governance. The Bureaucracy has been totally charged and is back into action. We also find that schemes for the economically backward citizens like Jan Dhan Yojana, Accidental Insurance, Atal Pension Yojana and also programmes like Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, 21st June as "International Yoga Day" (Resolution passed by United Nations) Ease of Business and Make-in-India. All these are steps for an inclusive development of the country which will result into a better livelihood and also raising the standard of living of the millions of our countrymen.

We are definitely in a take off stage and our Government is also eyeing a double digit growth, we all as responsible citizens may be Opposition Leaders, Main stream Media persons (Electronic & Print), Leaders of Social and Religious Organizations and various NGOs must all keep faith in the Government and support to implement their Vision and Policies for a India, which is poised to become a leading economic power of the world.

In this growth journey there may be certain policies and practices which may not align with many Individuals, Groups or Corporates but we have to see the larger picture and allow the process to be followed smoothly. There has to be a positive and strong opposition which should check if there are any corrupt practices or policies which are favoring any Individuals or Groups. The Media plays a very important role in our day-to-day life, hence it is expected that they play a positive role instead of only giving breaking news of negatives that happen around us, ours is a very large country and it is natural that some adverse events and incidents may happen on daily basis which needs to be reported but not in the way it is currently happening.

Let us all support the Government to implement all their initiatives so that in the coming years we enjoy the fruits of development and all live in peace and prosperity in a NEW India.
