New Delhi: Asserting that the manifesto of the BJP for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections reflects the ‘true spirit of democracy’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that the government was moving forward with ‘one mission, one direction’.
Speaking after releasing the BJP ‘Sankalp Patra’ (manifesto) for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the PM said, “the foundation of the BJP ‘Sankalp Patra’ is one mission, one direction. We have set 75 well-defined resolutions in our manifesto that we can fulfill in a time bound manner. We are moving forward with ‘one mission, one direction’.’’
The PM said that the NDA Government had strived to make India’s development policies multi-layered.
“We have strived to make our development policies multi-layered. We have also tried to bring in a multi-dimensional aspect to our policies, so that they can be dynamic with respect to what the situation demands,’’ he said.
Terming Nationalism and unity as priorities for the government, the PM said, “We have planned out goals that are time-bound and well defined. Nationalism, unity, and security are to be the party’s priority for the 2019 election.”
Noting that water scarcity was one of the major problems being faced by the country, the PM promised to create a new organisation to ensure that our water resources are used in an optimum way.
