New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday interacted with all secretaries to the Indian government in the national capital and appreciated their hard work. On the occasion, Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Amit Shah, Nirmala Sitharaman and Dr Jitendra Singh were also present.

During the interaction, PM Modi said, “Recent General Elections have been marked by pro-incumbency, for which credit must go to the entire team of officials which worked hard, conceived schemes and delivered excellent results on the ground, over the last five years.” “Elections this time have been marked by a positive vote, which emerges from trust that the common man feels, based on his day-to-day experiences,” he added.

The Prime Minister further said that the Indian voter has outlined a vision for the next five years and this is now an opportunity before us. He said, “Huge expectations of the people should not be viewed as a challenge, but an opportunity. The mandate reflects the will and aspirations of the people to change the status quo, and seek a better life for themselves.”

Speaking of the demographic dividend, the Prime Minister said that it is essential that the demographics be utilised efficiently. “Every department of the Union Government, and every district of each State has a role to play in making India a 5 trillion dollar economy,” he said. He also touched upon the importance of the ‘Make in India’ initiative and the need to make tangible progress towards this end.

The Prime Minister said that India's progress in ‘Ease of Doing Business’, should reflect in greater facilitation for small businesses and entrepreneurs. He also said the each Ministry of the Government should focus on ‘Ease of Living’.

The Prime Minister underlined that water, fisheries and animal husbandry will also be important areas for the Government. He, in the end, stated that all departments must seek to leverage the upcoming milestone of 75 years of independence, which can inspire people to make a contribution for the betterment of the country. Also, the PM urged everyone to hit the ground running in a bid to fulfil the aspirations of the people.

During the interaction, PK Sinha, the Cabinet Secretary, recalled how the Prime Minister has interacted directly with all officers upto Director/Deputy Secretary level, in the previous tenure of the Government.

Looking forward, the Cabinet Secretary mentioned two important tasks which would be placed before Sectoral Groups of Secretaries i.e. a five year plan document for each Ministry with well-defined targets and milestones and a significant impactful decision in each Ministry for which approvals will be taken within 100 days.
