Five remarkable achievements of the Narendra Modi-led BJP govt
The Modi government last month completed four years in office. Although it is not a very long period to assess the performance of a government but it has become imperative to take a look at few major steps undertaken by team Modi as the opposition parties are continuously indulged in criticism against the functioning of the ruling government.

There are many achievements worth mentioning of the Modi government such as the shining global image of India, emergence of Modi as an undisputed global leader, improvement in the overall ranking of India, and most importantly, India having the fastest growth rate among global economies. Also, revolutionary improvement undertaken in the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has been good.

But my focus today is not highlighting the foreign policy or global image of Modi ji or the complex monetary policies but I simply intend to mention the issues connected directly with the welfare of a common man.

1) Rural electrification in my view is the most important step undertaken by the Modi government. Now most of the Indian villages have been provided electricity – a must for every household and a prime requirement for the overall development of the masses be it education, business, implementation of social welfare schemes or sharing of information and development programmes. Rural population is now enjoying watching TV programmes all thanks to this visionary step. This will go a long way in rewriting the growth story of an emerging new India.

2) Connectivity is the key to growth. Perhaps keeping this in mind, Modi ji has given top most priority to road building projects. Under UPA's rule, on a daily average only 17 km of roads were being constructed. But ever since Modi ji has taken over, around 40 km of roads are being constructed on a daily average. Not only the road stretches but the quality of lanes has also improved.

3) Another landmark and revolutionary step undertaken by the Modi government is to provide medical insurance cover of Rs 5 lakh each to 500 million low-income Indian families. This is being done under a very bold and far sighted scheme called National Health Protection Scheme. Likely to be launched on 2 October 2018, with an estimated annual budget of Rs 10000 crore, setting up of rural health clinics will be a real big challenge but let us hope for the best. At least the government has taken the much required step to improve the crucial health issue of poor people of the country.

4) Mudra Yojna is the one which appears to be a game changer in the near future. Under this proposed scheme, loans are being distributed to small entrepreneurs with just little or no collateral. This will not only boost entrepreneurship among the youth but will also generate much needed employment. In fact, the scheme might improve the overall business situation and trade environment especially in the rural areas where majority of the population still relies on agriculture. There is no dearth of talented and hard working youth but so far banks had only been catering to the large cities with no one ever considering opening up opportunities for rural youth.

5) Jan Dhan Yojna is another scheme launched with roaring success. It has created more then 312 million bank accounts and through this direct benefit transfer (DBT) scheme, pilferage in distribution of subsidised LPG cylinders to the poor and needy has been cut drastically which ultimately will benefit the poor.

Apart from the above steps initiated by the Modi government, a lot more is being done in almost every field and the results thereof will be visible in a few years time. Let us fully support the initiatives taken by the government. If the nation grows we automatically become the beneficiaries.
