There is positivity and hope towards India at a global level as reforms are not carried out of compulsion but by conviction, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.
While speaking in Parliament (Lok Sabha), he credited this positivity to stability, India’s global standing, the growing capability and new emerging possibilities.
Throwing light on the atmosphere of trust in the country, the Prime Minister said that India has a government that is stable and decisive.
He underlined the belief that reforms are not carried out of compulsion but by conviction. “The world is seeing prosperity in India’s prosperity," he said.
Amid India's ban on BBC documentary on PM Modi, he noted that the country is the mother of democracy and constructive criticism is vital for a strong democracy.
Interestingly, Prime Minister Modi said that criticism is like a ‘shuddhi yagya’ (purification yagya).
The Prime Minister lamented that instead of constructive criticism, some people indulge in compulsive criticism.
He observed that in the last 9 years, we have had compulsive critics who indulge in unsubstantiated allegations instead of constructive criticism.
The Prime Minister said that such criticism will not pass muster with the people who are experiencing the basic facilities for the first time now. He said instead of a dynasty, he is a member of the family of 140 crore Indians.
“The blessings of 140 crore Indians is my Suraksha Kavach," the Prime Minister remarked.
The Prime Minister reiterated the commitment towards those who are deprived and neglected and asserted that the biggest benefit of the government’s scheme has gone to dalits, adivasis, women and vulnerable sections.
Throwing light on the Nari Shakti of India, the Prime Minister informed that no efforts have been spared to strengthen India's Nari Shakti.
He remarked that when the mothers of India are strengthened, then the people are strengthened, and when the people are strengthened it strengthens the society which leads to a strengthening of the nation. He also underlined that the government has addressed the aspirations of the middle class and honoured them for their honesty.
Highlighting that the common citizens of India are full of positivity, Modi emphasised that even though the Indian society has the capability to deal with negativity, it never accepts this negativity.
