Jammu: Prime Minister Narendra Modi personifies the true essence of democracy, wherein a common man can rise to the “highest echelons” on the basis of sheer merit and people’s support, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said on Sunday.
Addressing a meeting at Majalta in his home constituency of Udhampur, the minister of state in the Prime Minister’s Office said Modi’s rise to the position of the prime minister has restored the faith of common people in the country’s democracy.
“True essence of democracy is where the mother of a newborn, regardless of the social or economic status and lineage of the household, has the confidence to dream that in a democratic order, her child can achieve the highest position in hierarchy,” Singh said.
“If that be so, Modi’s rise to the position of the prime minister restored the faith of common people in the democratic strength and values of India. At the same time, it also marked the end of dynasticism that resulted in family rule of successive generations at the Centre,” Singh said.
“PM Modi personifies the true essence of democracy, wherein a common man from a humble background can rise to the highest echelons on the basis of sheer merit and people’s popular support,” an official statement quoted Singh as saying.
He said the public welfare schemes and programmes introduced by Modi-led government during the last eight years for the benefit of deprived sections of society are a redemption of six decades of struggle by the BJP for establishing a governance system based on the principle of appeasement to none, justice to all.
