Since the time I became aware of governance, I witnessed the Congress in power at the central level and multiple parties governing J&K. Initially, I held the belief that this was the only way a government could rule its people, often struggling to reach grassroots levels. However, my perspective on this well-structured thought evolved post-2014, with the ascension of PM Modi to the Prime Minister’s seat. During my childhood, I observed that dilapidated roads in villages would remain so for years due to a lack of monitoring, and even honest officers intervening were often suppressed by political elites. The concept of a welfare state was non-existent, and the ‘Nation First’ theory was not effectively implemented.
PM Modi’s approach, reaching every doorstep by mobilizing party workers to ensure welfare schemes reach the poor, is not only commendable but also highlights his ability and efficiency in governing the nation for at least another fifty years. In this article, I aim to unveil the recent statement of Hon’ble PM Modi—a GYAN-centric approach that envisions a Viksit Bharat.
In a resounding call for collective action and national development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has articulated a compelling vision for India’s transformation into a developed nation by 2047, coinciding with the 100th year of its independence. The Prime Minister’s strategic roadmap, encapsulated in the acronym ‘GYAN’—Garib (poor), Yuva (youth), Annadata (farmers), and Narishakti (women empowerment)—serves as a beacon for a holistic and inclusive approach to development.
PM Modi’s emphasis on “Hum GYAN pe dhyaan denge, GYAN ko sammaan denge, toh Viksit Bharat Banega” reflects a deep understanding of the transformative power of knowledge. The vision not only underscores the significance of intellectual advancement but also places a strong focus on the empowerment of marginalized sections of society.
The core of the ‘GYAN’ approach lies in addressing the multifaceted aspects of development. ‘G’ calls for the upliftment of the poor, recognizing them as equal stakeholders in the nation’s progress. ‘Y’ symbolizes the vigour and potential of the youth, representing an investment in the future of the country. ‘A’ underscores the importance of supporting farmers, the backbone of India’s agrarian economy. Finally, ‘N’ emphasizes empowering women, acknowledging their pivotal role in the nation-building process.
As India stands at the cusp of the next 25 years, Prime Minister Modi’s optimism resonates with the spirit that fuelled the struggle for independence a century ago. He draws inspiration from the unwavering energy and commitment of the people, describing it as his driving force. What sets PM Modi’s vision apart is his unyielding commitment to the mantra of “Nation First.” This guiding principle has been the lodestar for his decisions, be it as a dedicated party worker, a decisive Chief Minister, or the leader of the nation. Every policy, every initiative, and every difficult decision has been made through the prism of national interest. This is why I assert and strongly believe that no other Prime Minister in the past has demonstrated such a formidable ‘political will.’ Another conviction of mine is that only a leader of Modi’s calibre can challenge and defeat Modi.
The ‘GYAN’ framework represents more than just a strategy; it embodies a comprehensive and inclusive vision for India’s future. By emphasizing knowledge, youth, farmers, and women, Prime Minister Modi is steering the nation towards a path of holistic development, where no one is left behind.
From the rallying call ‘If you are 18, why are you waiting, come for voting’ to a series of impactful policy measures, the GYAN-centric approach under the leadership of PM Modi is well underway, aligning with his vision of achieving a developed India by 2047. Notable initiatives include increasing the ‘Kisan Nidhi’ for farmers, additional incentives on the Kisan Credit Card, enhanced benefits on the healthcare front, and making the New Pension Scheme (NPS) more attractive by ensuring a fixed return.
Furthermore, the GYAN-centric approach extends to women-specific schemes like Ladli Behna Yojana and Mahtari Vandan Yojana, demonstrating a comprehensive strategy for inclusive development. As of today, India stands as the world’s fifth-largest economy, and according to IMF projections, it is poised to secure the fourth position by 2025 and move into the third position by 2027 as a US$ 5.4 trillion economy. PM Modi’s forward-looking initiatives reflect a determined commitment to steering India towards the path of becoming a developed nation.
As the nation embarks on this transformative journey towards ‘Viksit Bharat 2047,’ PM Modi’s visionary approach, underpinned by the principles of ‘GYAN’ and “Nation First,” sets a commendable benchmark for a prosperous and inclusive India. The next 25 years hold the promise of realizing this vision, marking a significant chapter in India’s history as it evolves into a developed, empowered, and united nation.
