eNarada, Bengaluru, June 5, 2017
Narendra Modi led NDA government is for entire India and not just for BJP ruled states, said Piyush Goyal, Minister of State with Independent Charge for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy and Mines in the Government of India.
Mr Goyal who was in Bengaluru to address a press conference on three-year achievements of the Modi government said that some of the opposition leaders were trying to create misconception that the Centre was not actively engaging those states ruled by non-BJP parties.
“Let me clarify that Narendra Modi government is for the entire India and not just BJP ruled states. If we take the example of Karnataka, we wanted to promote Ujala bulbs. However, lack of support from the Karnataka government ensured that this project didn’t reach the real beneficiaries. So, I would request every state government to keep their political differences aside and work for the country”, Goyal told eNarada.
Regarding the recent ranting of US President Donald Trump against India and China and his subsequent withdrawal from Paris climate pact, Goyal said no one can accuse India as we are the only country working for the betterment of the planet. “Our PM has been relentlessly working for the development of this country and his four-nation tour is one of the best examples. I am sure that India will soon emerge as a global leader,” he said adding that the Modi government had achieved many firsts. According to Mr Goyal, Modi government’s three year tenure is better than the previous governments which had ruled the country for more than three decades. “If you look at our achievements; development on all fronts, zero corruption, introduction of landmark bills like GST, demonetisation, action against benami property and the list goes on. The best part is that this government has a clarity in approach and we are sure to make India a super power”, Goyal added.
