New Delhi, September 18
Prime Minister Narendra Modi eliminated “feudal” customs and the “red beacon culture” to rework governance which perturbed those that regarded “circumambulation in the corridors of power” as their energy, Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi stated on Friday.
In a weblog titled ‘Culture of Parikrama Replaced by Commitment of Performance’, the Minority Affairs Minister talked about Modi’s governance fashion and stated the Prime Minister had opened common communication channels with ministers and secretaries thereby rising accountability and duty of all.
The Prime Minister’s governance has perturbed all those that thought-about “circumambulation in the corridors of power” as their energy and a “passport to success” for the final a number of a long time, he stated, in an obvious dig on the Congress.
They have now realised that the “work culture of result-oriented performance” was the one mantra paramount for the Modi authorities, Naqvi stated.
“Before 2014, receiving and seeing the Prime Minister off at the airport was a ‘loyal custom’ for the members of the Cabinet but this decades-old ‘feudal custom’ was given a quick and deserved burial by Modi,” Naqvi stated.
Prime Minister Modi additionally put an finish to “red beacon culture” which was synonymous with “snobbery and naked show of power and status”, he stated.
“Many MPs and VVIPs used to consider certain subsidies and privileges such as occupying government bungalows even without being a minister or an MP as ‘constitutional right’ or ‘birthright’ and this was abolished firmly and without exception,” Naqvi stated.
Many ministries have been accustomed to unexpectedly spending the foremost a part of their budgets within the final quarter and even the final month simply to fulfill the March deadline however Modi has put an finish to such “customary and lackadaisical” strategy of the federal government, Naqvi stated.
He claimed that the “tradition of work for one day” and “outing for 10 days”, which was the “norm” in the course of the overseas excursions of the Prime Minister, ministers and bureaucrats, was ended by Modi, who has ensured that official abroad travels have been result-oriented and work focussed.
“Another area of concern had been the hold of middlemen and brokers who kept their links with the personal staff in the offices of ministers intact even after changes in government and ministers but Prime Minister Modi clipped the wings of these brokers by restricting the tenure of the personal staff of ministers to 10 years overall,” he stated.
One much-desired space of reform has been the distinguished Padma awards which have been being given purely on political suggestions however now have develop into “people’s awards” the place they have been utterly people-driven and the deserving have been being honoured, Naqvi stated.
Noting that in latest months, India, together with virtually all different nations of the world, had been going by means of an unprecedented disaster because of the coronavirus pandemic, Naqvi stated that like a real chief, Prime Minister Modi had led the battle in opposition to this pandemic from the entrance.
“Timely actions and issuance of pan-India guidelines have helped the nation tackle the Corona challenge and the other challenges that came along such as floods, typhoons and the swarms of ‘tiddis’ (locusts), even as certain ‘fisaddis’ (losers) tried to create confusion,” the minister stated. PTI
