Modi lavishes praise on Madhya Pradesh for prompt implementation of central schemes

BHOPAL: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his inaugural address of the Global Investors’ Summit at Indore on Thursday, lavished praise on Madhya Pradesh saying “it is the first state that has implemented Central schemes promptly.”

The Prime Minister said that the Centre announced Digital India and foundation stones of two electronic manufacturing centres were laid in Madhya Pradesh soon after. It shows as to how the Centre and states can grow jointly at a rapid pace. The Centre implemented Jan-Dhan Yojana and Madhya Pradesh opened 36 lakh bank accounts under it within a short span of time and taking one step ahead of the Centre included family as a unit under the scheme.

Entire venue reverberated with sounds of clapping when the Prime Minister praised Madhya Pradesh. Modi said that he has said this on the basis of information available with him and not reading out any written statement. He also said that he is visiting Madhya Pradesh for first time after elections.

Modi said that even a backward state can emerge as the fastest growing state if policy and intentions are clear, direction and willpower to achieve goals are set. Expressing happiness, he said that Madhya Pradesh is the only state which has contributed 40 percent of country’s organic farming.

Madhya Pradesh implements concept of Make in Madhya Pradesh with low cost maximum production, effective governance and suitable infrastructure. Modi said that country’s power lies in states and only that country moves forward which realises strength of its states.

The Prime Minister said that even 100 global summits in New Delhi cannot develop the country. He said that development is possible only through summits held at places like Indore.
