4 Years of Narendra Modi Government
Author: Thamanna Abdul Latheef 28 May 2018
The NDA government has almost completed their 80% of the tenure, left the footprints of 4 years of Modi at his office, their governance was showered with both criticism and appreciation. Narendra Modi government has instilled the dreams of Achhe din, development, job creation, free subsidies, waiver of farm loans etc. But it has been a roller coaster ride and will see what were Modi government’s achievements in the last 4 years.
While comparing to that of UPA government which was well accused of "policy paralysis", Modi led NDA government was attacked for the divisive ideology and the hate speeches by its various leaders in several occasions. Even though the UPA government was knocked down because of hike in fuel price, corruption and scams, the scenario hasn't changed so far.
It is also to be noted that during Narendra Modi’s regime, various reforms were introduced and executed without a proper action plan. Demonetization, being the top controversial topic for discussion even now, without achieving its objectives to wipe out black money and terror funding and to promote digital transactions for a better transparent system caused hardship. The motive to bring more people into the tax net through demonetization has also affected the small-scale producers and industries adversely. The promotion of JAM- Aadhaar along with Jan Dhan accounts and mobile phones- may have been beneficial in targeting welfare transfers but the blanket promotion of Aadhaar has created concerns over both data security and exclusion.
On the social front, the successful implementation of the Jan Dhan Yojana with over 315 million accounts opened, the building of toilets under the Swachh Bharat Mission, the rural electrification of 18,000 villages, the acceleration of rural road connectivity, the Ujwala Yojana for LPG connectivity to poor homes in rural India, and the newly launched Saubhagya Yojana for rural household electrification are manifestations where the regime came together.
On the economic front, the passage of the Goods and Services Tax, opening up of FDI in defence and insurance, and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, Modi government worth appreciation but of course, there are shortfalls—the latent Jan Dhan accounts, the lack of water for toilets, the replacement gap in Ujwala—and the fact is both GST and the IBC are yet work in progress. However, Prime Minister’s core promises such as Young India, Digital India, and Make in India are still on board so its fruits are yet to be tasted. While Modi government is in their last year of the tenure, it is worth to wait and see what will it deliver as promised or whether will it contradict its initial slogan of ‘minimum government, maximum governance’.
