In today’s increasingly specialized and cut-throat world, a person needs in-depth knowledge and extensive domain expertise to handle a particular department even in a small company.
But it is highly unfortunate that people with no qualification or expertise in the field become Prime Minister, ministers, and bureaucrats in India to manage highly complex domains of governance. That’s why India continues to be a poor, underdeveloped country. ~ Rakesh Raman
Although the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi is not quite educated, he tries to show his little knowledge at every possible opportunity. On Monday, Modi met all Secretaries – the topmost officers of Ministries of the Government of India to teach them a few lessons.
Making a strong pitch to rise above the “administrative mechanisms of earlier centuries,” Modi said the Secretaries had an opportunity to transform the lives of one-sixth of humanity.
He asked them to identify concrete goals to be achieved by 2022 – the seventy-fifth anniversary of independence.
Modi exhorted the Secretaries to work beyond the silos of their respective Ministries for the development of the country.
On Swachhta Abhiyan, Modi said that the biggest groundswell of support has come from the people, and that is driving change at the administrative level.
He said the advent of GST on July 1st marks a turning point in the country’s history. He asked the Secretaries to proactively prepare for this transformation, to ensure a smooth transition.
He said the world is looking at India differently today, and this is a unique opportunity which should not be missed. Let us build mechanisms to meet global expectations, he asked the Secretaries.
Narendra Modi also called for a mission mode approach to the 100 most backward districts in India. He said specific goals should be set on various parameters in definite short timeframes for these districts.
Union Ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj, and Nitin Gadkari also addressed the Secretaries. Earlier, Secretaries also made some suggestions on various sectors of governance.
