Union Minister Prahlad Singh Patel, who was in Raipur to attend ‘Garib Kalyan Sammelan’ yesterday, applauded the Narendra Modi-led government for its ability to make quick decisions, as well as for implementing and withdrawing laws keeping in mind the welfare of the people.
While praising the government, Patel said that the population control law too will come in soon, just as so many other laws have been brought in to promote reforms. Talking to the reporters who asked about the much controversial population control law, Patel said, “It will be brought soon, don’t worry. When such strong and big decisions have been taken then the rest too (will be taken).”
Furthermore, Patel said that under PM Modi’s leadership the Centre has had a very successful run of eight years. “Eight years of Modi government is unmatched eight years, of service, of development, of good governance and of firm decisions, dozens of such things have happened which have happened for the first time since independence,” he stated.
Patel said that Modi government’s Jal Jeevan Mission saying that it has been a successful initiative through out India. However, he took a jibe at the congress government in Chhattisgarh, saying that they had been incapable of even implement Centre’s schemes correctly. He said, “The state government has been able to achieve only 23% work under Jal Jeevan Mission while the national average of target achievement is 50%. There is no problem with water sources in the state but the problem is management. Similarly, the state could not complete the target under the PM Awas scheme.”
