The coming to power of BJP has been a roller coaster ride for India, as it has seen a lot of progress, and some stagnation as well. As much as debatable this issue is, no one can deny the fact that BJP government has actually benefited the country and put forth some progressive schemes.
What are the benefits India got after BJP came into power? Keep reading to find out.
- Make in India
Promoting the Production and Manufacturing phase taking place in India has brought real benefits for the unemployed citizens, as plenty of jobs were created for the poor, under this initiative. Moreover, an increase in Foreign Direct Investments was seen, and many deals were made for selling the weapons produced in India, a strategy which will surely benefit in the longer run.
- Fastest Growing Economy
At 7.4%, India became the fastest growing economy all over the globe and left behind other stronger developing economies such as Brazil, Russia, etc. Also, this prosperity is not just benefiting the rich but is helping the poor as well, as the gap between the poor and rich has been shrinking and the poverty rates have fallen from 21% to 12.4% in the last 2 to 3 years.
- Electrification of Rural Areas
The Power Ministry under the BJP government has been working to its full potential and has finally succeeded in bringing each and every village and remote areas in the grid. More than 3000 villages have been electrified during their tenure and have truly lead to the progress of Rural India.
- Schemes for Financial Assistance
Schemes such as Accident Insurance for Poor Farmers, Pension for Poor, and Life Insurance schemes enroll 123 million, 1.2 million, and 29.2 million people respectively. Such schemes have helped the poor families to sustain themselves and lead a basic life, without any fatal troubles.
- Strengthening Federalism
Increasing the percentage of tax collected by the states have been a tremendous development in the politics of India as it strengthens the Federalist sentiment of the country. Moreover, it reduces the risk of center manipulating the states. Also, setting up NITI Aayog has been a detrimental step in making the representation of states stronger.
- Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan
The initiative of Modi Government called ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan’ has been a significant revolution in making the country cleaner and greener. The activities and initiatives under this programme encourage the citizens to keep their surroundings clean, and it employs a communal model to ensure cleanliness.
These and many more schemes and initiatives of BJP Government such as Smart Cities, Jan Dhan Yojana, etc, have yielded tangible achievements and have benefited the country to a great extent, making them extremely relevant in the current scenario.
