Narendra Modi: Vision and accomplishments
Modi took oath as India's 15th Prime Minister on 26th May 2014. He is the first ever PM to be born after India attained independence. Dynamic, dedicated and determined, Narendra Modi reflects the hopes and aspirations of over a billion Indians. Ever since assuming office, Narendra Modi has embarked on a journey of all round and inclusive development in which the people of India can live in peace and prosperity. Through a number of innovative ideas and initiatives, his government has been trying to ensure that India achieves fast socio-economic progress and gets a high place in the comity of nations. Narendra Modi and his government have focused on reforming and modernizing India's infrastructure and governance, reducing bureaucracy, encouraging increased foreign direct investment, improving national standards of health and sanitation, and improving India's relations with other countries. The book is a delineation of Narendra Modi as a politician, as India's Prime Minister, and as a dynamic personality. It also assesses his policies, achievement and the degree of success he and his government have achieved in bringing the desired transformation in India's economy, society and work culture, and how far they have fulfilled the promises made to the people during 2014 election campaigns. The subject matter is divided into 12 chapters, each dealing with a particular aspect of Narendra Modi's life, commitments, initiatives, and policies. For example, Modi has been doing his best to stop corruption at lower level by introducing technology and removing middlemen. E-auction of coal mines has ruled out any scans that had brought the downfall of UPA government. Some of the areas in which the government has not done well have also been discussed. For example, inflation has persisted all along and the level of pollution in big cities continues to be high. Cleaning of Ganga remains a distant dream despite huge spending by the government. India's growth which is projected to slow to 6.6% in 2016-17 fiscal due to the strains that have emerged in the economy as a result of temporary disruptions caused by demonetization, is another matter of concern. The book throws ample light on the personality, vision and achievements of Narendra Modi, India's most dynamic Prime Minister so far. It will apprise the readers about the governance of Modi and his determination to transform India into a modern and prosperous country. It will serve as a source of inspiration for people who want to emulate him.
