In a significant acknowledgment, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar asserted that the global narrative has pivoted towards India, with the international community engaging in discussions about the transformative changes witnessed in the nation over the past decade. Speaking at the Viksit Sankalp Bharat Yatra in Thiruvananthapuram, Jaishankar highlighted that the pivotal factor behind this shift is the evolution in India's vision.
As a representative of India on the global stage, Jaishankar often interacts with foreign counterparts and states that today, the rest of the world is genuinely talking about India. Questions abound regarding the remarkable transformation India has undergone, given that it was the same country 10, 20, or 30 years ago. According to Jaishankar, the resounding answer lies in the transformative vision that has propelled India forward.
The minister emphasized the role of technology in driving India's progress. With the widespread adoption of Aadhaar and the proliferation of bank accounts, India has harnessed technology to bring about significant changes not just in governance but also in society. The integration of mobile phones with these systems has facilitated the direct disbursement of benefits, showcasing the positive impact of technology on governance and citizen welfare.
Jaishankar commended the efforts of the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the past decade, characterizing it as a period of tremendous accomplishments that have brought about substantial changes in the lives of the Indian populace. He stressed the need to sustain this momentum and create a 'Viksit Bharat' or a Developed India.
The minister highlighted that the challenges faced by Indians, such as those related to health, water, electricity, and education, are not unique to India alone. He emphasized that these issues transcend borders and affect people globally, even in developed nations. This perspective positions India as a participant in a global dialogue on shared challenges and solutions.
Reflecting on his extensive 46-year tenure in government service, Jaishankar expressed that the last decade, during which he served both as a minister and in other capacities, has been particularly gratifying. He attributed this satisfaction to witnessing a comprehensive transformation in how the government operates, citing increased sensitivity in bureaucracy and improved customer-centric approaches among bankers under the Modi government.
The Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, undertaken across the nation, aims to achieve the saturation of flagship government schemes, ensuring that the benefits reach all targeted beneficiaries in a timely manner. The program marks a commitment to propel India further on its trajectory of development and progress.
