India can no longer wait for problems to remain unsolved even after 70 years of Independence: PM

SCREEN GRAB
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India can no longer wait for problems to remain unsolved even after 70 years of Independence. Replying to the debate on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s address in the Lok Sabha, Mr Modi said that the country deserves speedy growth with fine decision and decisiveness.

He said that people have seen the speed and work of this government and that was why they gave a bigger mandate in the elections. He said, if the current government would also have worked in the same mode as of the earlier government then even after 70 years, Article 370 would never have been abrogated and law on Triple Talaq would never have become a reality. Mr Modi said that the Ram Janmabhoomi issue would not have been resolved if the government would not have worked with determination.


Speaking on the issue of Bodo dispute, Prime Minister said that all the previous governments’ efforts in this matter only remained confined to paperwork. Mr Modi said that the current accord with Bodo people is special in many ways. He said that all armed groups have surrendered as per the current accord. He also said that the tri-partite agreement mentions that no pending issue of the Bodo tribe will be left unaddressed.


Prime Minister said that there should no politics in farmer welfare and all have to work together towards their prosperity. He said, the issue of increasing the Minimum Support Price 1.5 times was also pending for long. He said, the MSP issue has been addressed as well by the current government. Prime Minister said, the government gave away 56 thousand crore rupees to farmers in Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana.


The Prime Minister said, the government has taken several steps to increase the trust of investors and make the economy stronger. He said, from Jan 2019 to 2020, GST revenue crossed one lakh crore rupees six times. Mr Modi said, initiatives like MUDRA Yojana, Start-up India, and Stand-Up India have given a lot of youth chances of self-employment. He said, labour reforms need to be promoted to give a push to job creation.

Mr Modi said, under the MUDRA Yojana, crores of people not just became entrepreneurs themselves but also hired other people. He said, it is due to the speed of this government that in the last five years, 37 crore people got bank accounts, 11 crore people got toilets in their homes, 13 crore people got gas connections and two crore people got their own homes. He asserted foreign investors are believing in India's economy and its opportunities. Mr Modi urged all members in the house to discuss economic issues in detail so that India can benefit from the present global situation.


Prime Minister slammed controversial remarks made by Jammu and Kashmir leaders Mehbooba Mufti, Omar Abdullah and Farooq Abdullah on abrogation of Article 370. Referring to the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir, he said, Kashmir's identity was buried on 19th January, 1990.


Prime Minister Modi targeted the Opposition over the Citizenship Amendment Act, CAA protests and accused them of fear-mongering and misleading the country. He also took on Opposition leaders for sharing the stage with the anti-CAA protesters, saying that the nation is watching them closely. Mr Modi said, the CAA will not affect any Indian citizen and does not harm minority interests.


Later, Lok Sabha passed the Motion of Thanks to the President's address by a voice vote.
