New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today, it is time to ask for good governance after call for self-rule.
Referring to the slogan ‘swaraj (self-rule) is my birth right and I shall have it’ given by freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak, he said, “Today is the time to say that good governance is our birth right and we will have it…”
“Every Indian should have access to good governance and positive results of development. It is the factoring in of this outreach that will create a new India,” Modi said.
The NDA government has been pushing for good governance by easing rules and repealing obsolete laws.
Prime Minister Modi has often used the phrase “more governance, less government” to drive home the point.
He referred to the contribution of Tilak, Vallabh Bhai Patel and Chandra Shekar ‘Azad’ in freedom struggle in his monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio address.
Tilak’s birth anniversary was on July 23 and his death anniversary is on August 1. Azad’s birth anniversary, too, was on July 23.
