“Today I feel pleased to visit Panchkula. Seva bhav is the main motto of the BJP even during the Pandemic, no stone left unturned by the Prime Minister in encouraging everyone to keep working for the society at not only state level but at block and booth level as well,” said the Finance Minister.
She said that even during the lockdown period, Prime Minister took regular meetings with high-level officers to ensure empowering of every sector, poor, labourers, and migrants. Five major Atamnirbhar Bharat announcements are the result of the direct interaction, dedication and timely directions given by the Prime Minister even during the COVID-19 Pandemic, added Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman.
The Union Minister said that for the past 70 years, India was working in a socialized manner. However, since 2014, major reforms were brought to take the country out of this socialism. Since 2014, relentless reforms are brought by the Center Government. From legislative corrections to administrative corrections, every possible effort was made to take India on the Atamnirbharta track and shifting the country’s economy from being fragile to fastest growing economy,” said Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman.
She said that various digital and economical reforms have been brought in every sector. While introducing digital reforms during Pandemic, money was transferred to the Jan Dhan accounts of the eligible families through a single click. Today everyone in India has bank accounts, said the Union Minister.
“Even under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, three cylinders were given free of cost along with free ration and food during Pandemic.

“Whatever we are earning, all that is being used in the development of India, from borders to oceans multimodal transport, defence corridor are being made from the revenue the government is earning. Unlike past government’s this money is not going into bank accounts of any particular family,” said Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman.
