The Congress raised doubts on the schemes launched by the NDA government for the poor such as building toilets and providing free gas connections. The ambitious scheme, Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) scheme was launched recently by the Centre. It entails a direct deposit of Rs 6,000 in three installments to as many as 13 crore small and marginal farmers across the country.
During these four and half years, the NDA Government has introduced a number of reforms that have been appreciated by the people of the country including the Swachch Bharat project, Demonetisation, implementation of Goods and Services tax, Ujjwala Yojna among others.
Today, the country is progressing rapidly. We have built crores of homes, modernised hospitals, introduced digital India etc. All these are creating job opportunities for youngsters. Till 2014 only 39% of the population had access to sanitation facilities, today the figure is over 80%. From independence till 2014 there were around 6 crore toilets in the country but in the last four and a half years, 7.5 crore toilets have been made. The opposition parties used to think of vote bank politics, they never tried to help the poor. They only made promises and forgot them after the elections.
In the last 4 and half years, the government has shown that India can change. Today the situation has changed. The country is in the path of development. The country is progressing with the best administration.
