Make best of tech in rolling out schemes: PM to babus

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Civil Services Day

He stressed on the importance of Jan Bhagidaari, or public participation, in development.

The Prime Minister asserted that all available technology, including space technology, should be used for improving governance.

Addressing bureaucrats at the conclusion of the two-day Civil Services Day function, the PM said the administration's aim in the pre-Independence era was to keep the Englishman safe, but today it has to ensure that the common man is provided relief. He urged the senior officials to listen to them, ascertain their problem, rekindle the energy in their heart and encourage them to get back in the race.

Speaking on the subject of "Aspirational Districts", PM Modi said that these districts can become growth engines for their entire States.

Appreciating the work of the BJP MPs and MLAs at the grassroot level, Modi said his government was focusing on education for children, opportunities for youth and healthcare for the elderly.


Taking on the criticism that his government had not created enough jobs, he said lifestyle and sources of livelihood have changed in villages as he emphasised his government's efforts to boost self-employment."Those doing politics over employment figure may do so but the government will provide the masses with self-employment opportunities by developing skills of the youth", Modi said.

"Prime Minister's award is a step towards motivating civil servants". Further, he said that even the laggards whether civil servants or the districts can be motivated to put their best in contributing towards nation building.

Accordingly, for this year's awards, four programmes had been earmarked, which include Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY), Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) and Promotion of Digital Payments, he added.

Earlier, he released two books-New Pathways, a compilation of success stories related to implementation of identified Priority Programmes and Innovations, and Aspirational Districts: Unlocking Potentials-an account of strategies for transforming aspirational districts.
