A letter from PM Modi



My dear fellow citizens!
Service, in our Indian ethos is the ultimate duty ”“  Seva Parmo Dharma. One year ago, you had entrusted me with the responsibility and honour of serving you as your . I have devoted every moment of every day, and every element of my body and spirit, in fulfilling the same with fullest sincerity and honesty.
We assumed office at a time when confidence in the India story was waning. Un-abated corruption and indecisiveness had paralyzed the government. People had been left helpless against ever climbing inflation and economic insecurity.  Urgent and decisive action was needed.

We systematically went about addressing these challenges.  Runaway prices were immediately brought under control. The languishing economy was rejuvenated, building on  stable, policy-driven proactive governance. Discretionary allotment of our precious natural resources to a chosen few was replaced  with transparent auctions. Firm steps were taken against Black Money, from setting up a  SIT  and passing a stringent  black money law, to generating international consensus against the same. Uncompromising adherence to the principle of purity, in action as well as intent, ensured  a corruption-free  government. Significant changes have been brought about in work culture, nurturing a combination of  empathy  as well as professionalism, systems  as well  breaking of silos. State governments have been made equal partners in quest for national development,  building the spirit of  Team India.  Most importantly, we have been able to  restore Trust in the government.

Guided by the principle of  Antyodaya, our Government is  dedicated to the poor, marginalized and those left behind.  We are working towards empowering them to become our soldiers in the war against poverty. Numerous measures and schemes have been initiated ”“ from making  school toilets  to setting up  IITs, IIMs  and  AIIMS;  from providing a  vaccination  cover to our children to initiating a people-driven Swachh Bharat Mission; from ensuring a  minimum pension  to our labourers to providing social security to the common man;  from enhancing  support  to our  farmers  hit by natural calamities to defending their interests at  WTO; from empowering one and all with  self attestation  to delivering  subsidies directly  to people’s banks; from universalizing the banking system to funding the unfunded    small businesses; from irrigating fields to rejuvenating Ma Ganga  ; from moving towards  24×7 power  to connecting the nation through road and rail; from building homes for the homeless  to setting up  smart cities, and from connecting the  North-Eastto prioritizing development of  Eastern India.

Friends, this is just the beginning.  Our objective is to transform quality of life, infrastructure and services. Together we shall build the India of your dreams and that of our freedom fighters. In this, I seek your blessings and continued support.


Always in your Service,
Jai Hind!
