Taking the voyage ahead of where Mr. Vajpayee had left, Mr. Modi is all ready to prove correct his selection as the key administrator of India. Though concerns are many and not much can be expected in such a short term, we can feel relaxed with the beginning. The time seems to be over for bureaucrats and ministers to stay motionless post their appointment and it is certain that every department would now have to prove its survival. It may seem too early to predict or assess the deliveries of the new government; however the synergy and effectiveness that the PMO has attempted to ensure uncovers the near positive outcomes.
The key factors responsible for the inefficiency of previous two governments, UPA and UPA-2 were excessive dependence on the alliances and extreme control exercised by a few Congress leaders. If the U.P. state government is weighed on these parameters, the alliances are absent and control is being exercised by uncountable powerhouses. Hence, none of the positions can assure productivity. Mr. Modi seems to have understood how the balance between delegation of authority and centralization has to be sustained. You must agree that limits are necessary for every parameter, which when recognized deliver anticipated outcomes.
Many of us advocate that centralization can work out while administrating a state; however running the country needs delegation of responsibility, along with co-operation. With PMO interfering in the subject matters of appointment of Private Secretaries, you just cannot conclude that power is being exercised single-handedly. Rather, old curses are being worked out to realize Mr. Modi’s vision 2022 and attempt is being made to keep away from the bottlenecks that held the pace of development in the past ten years. And forget about the Governors who were appointed by the previous government without any due diligence and selection criteria.
Fifty essential medicines are very soon to be made available free of cost to every Indian; neighboring as well as other foreign nations are looking forward to cordial relations; armed forces of India are motivated; and none of the ministers has superfluous control over the working of the government are a few signs that promise that Mr. Modi’s way of governance can soon fetch quality accreditation. And those complaining about the recent hike in the railway fares shall grab a book of management and economics to realize how funds are to be managed and how excessive subsidies and favors result into unworkable collapses.
Mr. Modi’s 8 point development model- Education (IITs, IIMs, and AIIMS in all states), Urban Development (smart cities, interlinking rivers, bullet trains, and satellite cities), Healthcare, Anti-corruption measures (curbing money laundering), Price Control (price stabilization fund, special courts for black marketers), Children and Women Development (Beti Bachao Programme), Federal Structure, and Agricultural Reforms (national agriculture market and data bank for agri produce) if implemented properly would surely fetch quality certification for the government. Viewing the beginning, the end seems productive and enriching.
Hurdles are many and goals are endless. Ranging from eradication of poverty and unemployment to access to basic necessities to all, the new government has uncountable targets. And every Indian, along with those in the opposition in Parliament must comprehend the real delivery prior to commenting on the way of governance. I realize that criticism is a part of appraisal and hence any of the wrong measures of the government shall also be taken note of. India looks forward to dignity of life to every citizen, calm and productive relations with foreign nations, security of the inhabitants, and above all deep-rooted peace and harmony.
