Katra: Union minister Jitendra Singh on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governance reforms have a deep social impact and are aimed at achieving ‘ease of living’ for the common man through ‘ease of governance’.

Addressing the Jammu and Kashmir BJP working committee meeting on the party programmes planned to celebrate eight years of the Narendra Modi government, he said while most of the governments take pride in introducing new laws and rules, it was under Modi that over 1,600 such rules and laws had been done away with which had become obsolete and lost relevance with the passage of time.

These, he said, included abolition of practice of getting documents attested by a gazetted officer, abolition of interviews for recruitment to government service and abolition of pension laws which laid cumbersome conditions on the sanction of family pension to separated/divorced daughters of deceased employees or families of missing employees.

“It is a divine coincidence that Jammu and Kashmir BJP is holding its working committee meeting coinciding with the successful completion of eight years of the Modi government in the holy town of Katra–Vaishno Devi from where Modi had started his Lok Sabha election campaign after being designated as the party’s prime ministerial candidate by the BJP,” Singh, the Minister of State for Personnel, said.

He said the hallmark of Modi’s governance model is his capacity to take out-of-box decisions, break the taboos of the past and the capacity to convert  government’s campaign into mass campaign on the basis of his courage, conviction and sincerity.

In this regard, Singh cited the prime minster’s decisions like “unlocking” the space sector for private players and making a call for swacchta campaign during his Independence Day address which instantly turned into a mass campaign and people carried it forward as if it had been initiated by them only.

He said when we go to the masses and discuss eight successful years of the Modi government, it will be an opportunity for us to promote the culture and potential of start-ups in Jammu and Kashmir because this directly relates to the livelihood and sustainability of youth and youth are also going to be main opinion makers in the years to come.

In reference to Amrit Mahotsav, Singh referred to [email protected] and said the future roadmap for India @100 has to be determined by relevant indices at that time and the new parameters based on new factors like Artificial Intelligence.

BJP’s working committee condemns Pakistan for its support to terrorism in J&K

The state working committee of the BJP on Sunday passed a resolution to condemn Pakistan for its continued support to terrorism in the Union Territory, Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina said.

The working committee meeting was attended by senior party leaders, including Union minister Jitendra Singh, and discussed the prevailing political and security situation besides measures to further strengthen the party at the grassroot level with the focus on the next assembly elections, Raina said.

While the working committee met under the chairmanship of Raina in Jammu on Saturday, the second day session was held at Katra in Reasi district.

Raina, in his presidential address, thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the unprecedented growth and development in Jammu and Kashmir.

“The region is witnessing major development under the direct observation of our hardworking prime minister,” he said and accused the past governments of not making any efforts to strengthen democracy in Jammu and Kashmir.

“PM Modi-led Union government ensured grassroot level democracy in Jammu and Kashmir by holding elections to all the institutions coming under three-tier democracy. The Narendra Modi government is also working on the principle of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwaas’,” he said.

He enumerated various public welfare schemes like PMAY, Swachh Bharat, e-shram cards and pension schemes and their direct welfare benefits to the people.

Thanking party activists for their dedicated efforts in making BJP a “reckoning force” in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP leader claimed that the main opposition parties, including Congress, National Conference and PDP, have been rejected by the people.

“BJP is confident of forming the next government in Jammu and Kashmir with absolute majority,” Raina said.

Raina later told reporters that a resolution was passed by the participants, condemning Pakistan for its continued support to terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

The meeting also paid tributes to those who lost their lives in the recent past and saluted the sacrifice, valour and bravery of the police and security forces involved in the fight against Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.
