Modi government completes one year of second term in office, PM says, historic decisions taken

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a letter to the nation one year into his second term, said the nation took historic decisions and progressed rapidly in the last year but conceded that migrant workers, labourers and others had “undergone tremendous suffering” during the coronavirus crisis. He also predicted that India would set an example in economic revival and surprise the world like it did in its fight against the pandemic.

“In a crisis of this magnitude, it can certainly not be claimed that no one suffered any inconvenience or discomfort. Our labourers, migrant workers, artisans and craftsmen in small scale industries, hawkers and such fellow countrymen have undergone tremendous suffering,” PM Modi said in his letter addressed to “fellow Indians”. The Prime Minister said he was aware that a lot needed to be done. “There are many challenges and problems that our country faces. I am working day and night. There could be deficiencies in me but there is nothing that our country lacks. So, I believe in you, your strength and your abilities even more than I believe in myself,” he said, reiterating his mantra of self-reliant India.

PM Modi said a “golden chapter” began in Indian democracy this day last year, when he came to power for the second straight term. It was after several decades that the country voted back a full-term government with a full majority. In the letter PM wrote that in the last five years, the administrative apparatus “broke itself free of status quo and from the swamp of corruption as well as misgovernance. India’s stature rose significantly, he said, and the dignity of the poor was enhanced.

He listed steps taken by his government, and also recalled the 2016 surgical strike on terror camps across the Line of Control and the 2019 air strike to bomb a terror training site deep inside Pakistan. He referred to the scrapping of special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370, and also mentioned the Supreme Court’s Ayodhya verdict. On the Citizenship Amendment Act, which saw nationwide protests, the PM said “it was an expression of India’s compassion and spirit of inclusiveness”.
