On Tuesday, President Droupadi Murmu emphasized the importance of political stability in the country’s development, noting that India is in a better position than other countries due to decisions taken in the national interest by the Central Government.
President Murmu addressed a joint session of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha in Parliament, praising the stability and decisiveness of her government in tackling the world’s largest crisis in over a century. She stated that countries plagued with political instability face a more challenging situation in comparison to India, which has managed to remain relatively unscathed due to timely decisions taken in the national interest.
According to her, ‘Garibi hatao’ was not a slogan anymore, but the government has been working to have a perpetual result to the issues of the poor and authorizing them. She said, “About 11 crore families have been connected with piped water supply in three years under the Jal Jeevan Mission. Poor families are getting the maximum benefit from this”.
“As a result of my government’s efforts in the last few years, many basic facilities have either reached 100 percent population or are very close to that target,” she said. President Murmu noted the work completed by the government and mentioned that the ministry had worked for each and every part of the community without any discrimination.
The President said, “With complete transparency, more than Rs 27 lakh crore have been provided to crores of people. A World Bank report states that with such schemes and systems, India was able to save crores of people from dropping below the poverty line during Covid”.
She even stated that the government had taken some steps to control the problems while discussing corruption as the predominant hostile to social justice and democracy.
“My government clearly believes that corruption is the biggest enemy of democracy and social justice. Therefore, to seize the property of fugitive economic offenders, my government passed the Fugitive Economic Offenders Act,” she said.
“My government has awakened the aspirations of the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, and Other Backward Classes. Now that basic facilities are reaching them, these people can see new dreams,” the President added.
