On Thursday, in charge of the publicity division of the BJP, Arun Jaitley, announced that BJP introduced the new slogan “Modi hai to mumkin hai” (With Modi, it is possible) for the upcoming general elections. He re-introduced the Prime Minister, calling him a quick learner who easily adapted foreign policies, and well handled economic and strategic issues as he prepared to plunge into the next round of polls.
His words were,
“His image as a doer is now recognised by most Indians. Many India observers across the world have marvelled with India’s pace of taking decisions and implementing them. The BJP, therefore, has chosen an effective slogan for the forthcoming elections ‘Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai’ ‘Modi makes it possible’.”
Jaitley, the Minister of Corporate Affairs, put out a list of “landmark” decisions of the Modi-led government in a Facebook blog based on which he said that India maintained the position of globe’s fastest growing economy and its “sweet spot.”
“It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference. It is precisely for this reason that India will witness an election where people will get an opportunity to endorse Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, decisiveness, integrity, and performance. Indeed he makes it possible.”
Further in the ‘Agenda 2019 – Part-4’ blog post, Jaitley said that Modi has demonstrated during the last five years indefatigability by literally working round-the-clock.
As for 2014, the slogan was ‘Abki baar Modi sarkar‘ and this year it will be “Modi hai to mumkin hai.”
There are several achievements of Modi like from implementing a smooth GST to reducing direct and indirect taxes for the citizens, to building roads, rural homes, and highways, and assuring affordable hospital treatment to the poorest of the poor.
The Finance Minister further said,
“The Prime Minister and the Government have shown to the world that it is possible in India to run an honest Government in India. For the first time in history, a 10 percent reservation for the economically weaker sections of the non-reserved categories has been given in public employment and educational institutions.”
“India has demonstrated, both through the Surgical Strikes of 2016 and Air Strikes of 2019 that rather than merely dealing with terrorism within the country will not suffice. It is willing to adopt unconventional methods of attacking terror at the at the point of its origin.”
“The above are only an illustrative list of the kinds of strides India is making. Has any government done more? It was the same governmental machinery, the same political system, the same implementation instruments that the government had at its disposal.
It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference. It is precisely for this reason that India will witness an election where the people will get an opportunity to endorse Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, decisiveness, integrity, and performance. Indeed he makes it possible.”
