Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written a letter to the citizens of India to mark the first anniversary of his second term in office. In the letter, the Prime Minister has highlighted the achievements of his government and also reiterated the country's resolve in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prime Minister said, they  have proven that the collective strength and potential of Indians is unparalleled compared even to the powerful and prosperous countries of the world.

The Prime Minister said, in a crisis of this magnitude, it can certainly not be claimed that no one suffered any inconvenience or discomfort. Our labourers, migrant workers, artisans and craftsmen in small scale industries, hawkers and such fellow countrymen have undergone tremendous suffering. He said, we are working in a united and determined way to alleviate their troubles. Mr. Modi said, however, we have to take care to ensure that inconveniences that we are facing do not turn into disasters.

In his letter, the Prime Minister mentioned that at such a time, there is also a widespread debate on how the economies of various countries, including India’s, will recover. However, given the way India has surprised the world with its unity and resolve in the fight against Coronavirus, there is a firm belief that we will also set an example in economic revival. He said, in the economic domain, through their strength, 130 crore Indians can not only surprise the world but also inspire it.
 
Mr Modi stressed that it is the need of the hour that we must become self-reliant and added that we  have to move forward based on our own abilities, in our own way, and there is only one way to do it - Aatmanirbhar Bharat or Self-reliant India. He said, the recent  20 lakh crore rupees package given for Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan is a major step in this direction.

The Prime Minister said, in the last one year, some of the decisions were widely discussed and remain etched in public discourse. He said abrogation of Article 370 furthered the spirit of national unity and integration.
 
He said, the Ram Mandir judgment, delivered unanimously by the Supreme Court of India, brought an amicable end to a debate persisting for centuries while the  barbaric practice of Triple Talaq has been confined to the dustbin of history. He said,  amendment to the Citizenship Act was an expression of India’s compassion and spirit of inclusiveness.

The Prime Minister said, empowering the poor, farmers, women and youth has remained his Government's priority. He said, PM Kisan Samman Nidhi now includes all farmers and in  just one year, more than 72 thousand crore rupees  has been deposited in the accounts of over 9 crore 50 lakh farmers.On the other hand,  the Jal Jeevan Mission will ensure supply of potable drinking water through piped connections to over 15 crore rural households. He said, a huge campaign of free vaccination is being conducted for better health of our 50 crore livestock.

The Prime Minister said, back in 2014, the people of the country voted for a substantive transformation. In the last five years, the nation saw how the administrative apparatus broke itself free of status quo and from the swamp of corruption as well as misgovernance. He said, true to the spirit of ‘Antyodaya’ the lives of millions have been transformed.
   
The  Prime Minister said, in 2019, the people of the country  voted not merely for continuity but also with a dream- of taking India to new heights and a dream of making India a global leader. He said, the decisions taken in the last one year are directed at fulfilling this dream.

In the letter, Mr Modi mentioned that  today 130 crore people feel involved and integrated in the development trajectory of the nation. The light of ‘Jan Shakti’ and ‘Rashtra Shakti’ has ignited the entire nation. He said, powered by the Mantra of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas’ India is marching forward in all spheres. The Prime Minister said, in  this journey of the last six years, the people of the country  have continuously showered him  with love and blessings.

Mr Modi said, due to the global pandemic this is certainly a time of crisis but for us and  this is also a time for a firm resolve.He said, we  must always remember that the present and future of 130 crore people will never be dictated by an adversity. He said, we will decide our present and our future and we will move ahead on the path of progress and victory will be ours.
