Faridabad: Looking to promote the achievements of BJP governments at the Centre and Haryana, Union minister Krishna Pal Gurjar today listed out various schemes launched by them. As the Narendra Modi-led government completes one year in office, the MoS for Social Justice and Empowerment said that the country has transformed from "Scam India to Skill India".
He said that the principle of Prime Minister Narendra Modi "Na khaoonga, na khane doonga" has reflected in the open and transparent auction of the spectrum, in which a "never before" auction amount was received and added to the revenue of the government.
This amount would be used in the welfare schemes and infrastructure projects, the Faridabad MP said. Gurjar said that the BJP government has earned over Rs 2 lakh crores in the auction of only 33 mines out of total of 204 mines.
He accused the Prime Minister in the UPA regime of undertaking foreign trips without sharing with the country what he has done in those visits, as against Prime Minister Modi, who he said, has shared whatever he has done in all these 365 days, without taking a single day off.
With his foreign policy, the country has witnessed not only "friendly" relations with the other countries all over the world, but a boost in the business ties is quite visible, he said. He listed out the insurance schemes, opening of bank accounts, pace of development of highways, fast processing of projects at approval level, Ganga cleaning project, Swachh Bharat and Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, among others.
