Government must be enabler, not regulator: Modi

Narendra Modi

Modi made the comments during his address to bureaucrats at a programme to mark the 11th Civil Service Day at the Vigyan Bhavan here.

"Describing this day as one of rededication", the Prime Minister said that civil servants are well aware of their strengths and capabilities, challenges and responsibilities.

"There is no dearth of political will for reforms. Let us believe that through this set up we can bring a positive change in people's lives", he further added.

"Political will can reform but bureaucracy performs and public participation transforms".

Hierarchy is something we inherited from colonial rulers.

The ministers, divided in two camps, held meetings at the residents of Thangamani and Udumalai Radhakrishna. He also said as everybody made a decision to keep him out of the party affairs, he has chose to stay out.

The Prime Minister pointed out that earlier people depended on government for nearly everything as there was no competition. "For example- it can be about a private airline or a private healthcare service", PM said about the "changing trends in the last 15-20 years that have altered the dynamics".

He, however, added that things have changed now as we enter into an era of competition.

He also asked the civil servants to use social media, e-governance and mobile governance for the welfare of the people by reaching out to them.

With quantum jump in work must also come a qualitative change. General public depended on the government for all their needs.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday there is no dearth of political will for reforms in his government, indicating more such measures despite opposition criticism that some of them were hastily implemented. He said change in working style is the need of the hour for the progress of the country. Mr Modi said with changing times, the government has to become from regulator to an enabling entity.
