    Narendra Modi government recently completed 4 years at the helm of the largest democracy in the world. The report card for the Modi led government has been largely positive so far. Good governance and foreign policies have been the areas of emphasis from the beginning of the Modi government. The efforts towards making India a more lucrative destination for companies has pushed the ranking of India from 140th to 100th in ease of doing business as ranked by the World Bank. A large chunk of government offerings has been made digitally available to everyone so as to make living slightly hassle-free for the Indian citizens. More than 40 million households below the poverty line have received LPG connections under the Ujjwala Yojana. GST was introduced to do away with a host of other taxes and make lives easier for business class people. We have listed 10 out of a huge number of achievements of the present government under Narendra Modi.


    7Better Road Connectivity:

    Before the Bhartiya Janta Party was sworn into power, they had made three ambitious promises on their manifesto. They promised that they would connect tribal hamlets with all-weather roads, improve village road infrastructure and connect the ports. The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna was launched to improve the quality of the village roads. INR 19,000 crore was pumped into the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna which had fallen to a measly INR 9,000 crore during the Congress-led UPA government times. The time taken to complete a project has fallen in leaps and bounds as well since the UPA government. During the UPA II’s final fiscal year of 2013-14, it used to take 474 days to complete a project. Under the BJP government, this time has fallen by an astounding 74% to only 124 days. Even under the Modi government, the time taken to complete a project has been decreasing year on year which now stands at 124 days from 374 days in 2014-15.

    For national highways, the government had initially set itself a target of building 40 km of national highways per day. The pace had picked up in the recent fiscal with 21.46 km of highways being built in one day as compared to the respective fiscal in 2016-17 when 18.30 km of highways were being built. The total construction has also picked up in the last financial year with 6,439 km of roads built up in the first 10 months of 2016-17 as compared to 5,492 in the corresponding period in 2015-16. The National Highways Authority of India has been pulling its weight by achieving a pace of 6.91 km per day with the target being 9 km per day. The ministry of road transport and highway had been slacking off by building just 13.48 km per day against the target of 31 km per day. Though the targets set have not been achieved, the construction rate has doubled from the UPA government’s time when the average pace was only 11.67 km per day

    1. what wrong modi is doing ……and this is for every indian who criticize modi for no reason…

      Have you recently purchase some large home appliances or a car or bike etc. or find bride or bridegromm for your daughter or son…and so on and so forth …!!!!

      Please be patient and kindly rethink just for the sack of a moment ……The house which you own since last twinty thirty years and your are a part of the house for a more longer term … you are taking so much time , what ever it may be …now think of the same thing if you have been replaced as father figure of some one else family and you need to take all these decision in a hurry or in a said time frame if you are truly honest you first understand the cons and pros ….all the nitty gitty then you try to find the issues and problem area then you may take the decisions try to look at the deeper end ….many things are happening first time in our country they may have usually happen twenty thirty years ago….

    2. As far as common man is concerned none of these achievements have been of any use. On the contrary what is experienced is price rise,no job opportunities, life struggle increasing, fear among the people increased poverty and malnutrition and so on. What the common man want is a peaceful co existence with people around, no matter caste and creed the neighbour belongs.
      Modiji has totally failed in all these matters. Wastage of money on huge statues while the people of the country do not have two square meals a day.Development doesn’t seem to be the concern of Modiji unless he has queer concept of development.
