PM Modi calls for creating an India that is progressing rapidly and ensuring social justice for all

@narendramodi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said there is a need to ensure social justice for all and create an India that is progressing rapidly. Mr Modi said, the recently concluded Parliament session was devoted to social justice with measures being taken to protect the interests of Dalits, deprived people, tribals, women and the backwards.

Mr Modi said, many parts of the nation witnessed a good monsoon but at the same time parts of India have been affected by floods. He said, his thoughts are with the families of those who lost their lives due to floods in various parts of India. 
 
The Prime Minister said, the demand for higher MSP was pending for years. From farmers to political parties to agriculture experts, everybody was asking about it but nothing happened. He said, his Government took the decision on increasing MSP.

The Prime Minister said India will be the engine of growth for the world economy for the next three decades as the sleeping elephant has started to run on the back of structural reforms like GST. 

He thanked the business community for the success of the GST and for making it a reality. Mr Modi said, from being seen as among the fragile five, India is now the land of reform, perform and transform. He said the government is poised for record economic growth. 

The Prime Minister said, earlier it was red tape in India now it is red carpet. He said, India has become a multi-trillion dollar investment destination. The government has the power to take tough decisions because national interest is paramount for it.
