In the recent years, our respected Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi has introduced various campaigns through which he aims to make a change in the society.
Taking an example of ‘Swatch Bharat Abhiyan’. “A clean India would be the best tribute India could pay to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150 birth anniversary in 2019,” said Shri Narendra Modi as he launched the Swachh Bharat Mission at Rajpath in New Delhi. On 2nd October 2014, Swachh Bharat Mission was launched throughout the country as a national movement. To encourage people to move towards cleanliness, he involved various important personalities and celebrities in this initiative. Through this campaign, he wants to make a tremenous change in our our society which would not only have an impact on the lifestyle of the Indians, but also would affect the visions of the foreigners towards our country. Having a clean and green Bharat is his only goal through this campaign.
Secondly, speaking about his ‘Make In India Campaign’. Through this campaign, which was launched in September 2014, his motive is to encourage domestic production of goods and products in India.
On one hand, it would help create employment opportunities in the manufacturing sector, on the other hand it would help reduce imports and conserve expensive foreign exchange. This would also help India attain faster economic growth.
Mr Modi also launched Jan-Dhan Yojana earlier to include poor people in formal economy circle. The scheme provided for opening of new (zero balance) accounts for poor population, with Government making small financial contributions.
Recently, the demonetisation of INR 500/- and INR 1,000/- rupee notes was introduced. This is aimed at cleaning up of black money in the Indian economy. With this demonetisation, the Government aims to take out the unaccounted money from the Indian economic system and bring all high value transactions with in tax ambit. Though, this demonetisation is causing some inconvenience to the general public, it is expected to be help Indian economy grow faster over the long run.
