Pakistan, a nation that spreads hatred towards India day in and day out and promotes terrorism on our soil, of late,has not been able to deny the fact that India, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is improving its clout globally.
Pakistan’s renowned daily The Express Tributehas lauded the foreign policy of India, stating that India has been pursuing its foreign policy with utmost skill to make the country a haven for investments and for increasing its GDP to $ 3.5 trillion.
After waging three wars with India, Pakistan is left with poverty, unemployment and hardships, but nothing else, says Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, acknowledging that defeat at the hands of India had taught a befitting lesson to Pakistan. Former Pak PM Imran Khan has also admitted that there is a lot to be learnt from Indian foreign policy. At a time when big powers are reeling under economic slowdown, China is becoming crippled under the impact of Covid-19, and Pakistan is facing severe food crisis and shortage of electricity, India has registered significant and economic stability. India could weather the Covid-19 situation by stepping on gas in vaccine production and implementing Garib Kalyan Yojna and Anna Yojna schemes across the nation. Moreover, it supplied vaccines, medicines, and oxygen cylinders to many countries.
The Modi-led government took an uncompromising stand on border security issues. As a result, infiltration of terrorists into Indian soil and the operations of terror camps along the borders for locals in Kashmir have come down dramatically. A strong message was sent to China that India would not tolerate any misadventure on the part of China near the border.
The achievements of the country in the realms of global peace, environment, economic development and digital economy would attract world nations in the backdrop of the country leading the G-20 summit.
The credit of chairing the G-20 summit, UNO Security Council meeting and Shanghai Corporations in a single year goes to India.
The Modi government is committed to good governance. Amid a congenial law and order atmosphere, development of roads, ports, airports, seaports, public transport and implementation of many projects at a faster pace, the country emerged as the favourite destination for foreign investments. Bharat Mala, Sagar Mala, transport corridors, UDAN scheme have made doing business with India easier.
The Modi government proved in action that Atma Nirbhar India is not a mere slogan. In fact, 95 per cent of the mobile phones being used in the country are made in India. Apple and other major players in the electronics sector have chosen India to establish their offshore production facilities after withdrawing the from China. In fact, Apple Inc set for itself the target to produce 50 per cent of the production of its Apple mobile phones in India in four years.
The Government of India would soon unveil a policy that it at least one product should be exported from each district. The government is committed to providing food security to the people of the country by distributing rice among 80crore people, extending economic support to wage earners, farmers, MSMEs and extending loans to 31.98lakh street vendors through Pradhani Swanidhi Yojna.
The Modi government has increased the budgetary allocations for Adivasis. The allocations to set up Ekalavya Schools have been increased manifold from Rs 278 crore to Rs 1,418 crore. The Centre transferred Rs 25 lakh crore under the Direct Benefit Transfer scheme to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries. It extends Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojna, Suraksha Yojna, Atal Pension Yojna to various groups to extend social security.
The Kasi-Tamil Sangamam project, launched with the objective of culturally uniting the people from Kasi to Kanyakumari, was described as a grand success. The Ram temple taking shape at a fast pace in Ayodhya, sprawling Kasi mandir corridor, developmental works under way in Somnath, Kedarnath Dam rebuilding project,development of all-weather roads in Char Dham for the first time, expansion of the Ujjain temple corridor, Swadesh Darshan, Prasad Yojna and renaming Raj path as Kartavya Path, and the installation of Subhash Chandra Bose statue will unite the people of the country from patriotic and cultural perspectives. Cultural unity would pave the way for social cohesion.
The Prime Minister, who believes in ‘Sab Ka Saath Sab Ka Viswas’, while addressing the BJP national executive held recently, appealed to the party rank and file to take the most backward minorities like Pasmandas, BCs, Bohra Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and down-trodden sections under the party wings and create the feeling among them that the government works for all.
Under the leadership of Modi, the BJP is expanding with each passing day. The opposition parties, with the help of foreign media, are bent on provoking social differences. There is no question of the Modi government tolerating this. Hatching conspiracies to pull down Modi, who has emerged as the cleanest leader through decisions of courts and democratic election process, would not work.
