PM: Indian Railways will not be privatized; private investment will be used to facilitate modernization


The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today declared categorically that the Indian Railways would not be privatized. He was addressing a gathering in Varanasi after the commencement of expansion of the Diesel Locomotive Works. He asserted that his aim was to ensure that the modernization and growth of railways is facilitated through private investment, and not through public funds which are the property of the poor, and should be used to fulfil their basic needs including health and education. He said private investment would be used to modernize Railways and make it service-oriented, so that it could become an engine of growth for the nation.

Shri Narendra Modi said 4 rail universities would be established to ensure proper and well-trained human resource for the Railways. He said the Railways should not be seen as just a means of transport, but should become the backbone of economic development. He exhorted Railway workers to ensure that the best service in India is provided by the Indian Railways.

The Prime Minister, who earlier flagged off the new high horsepower diesel locomotive, described this as an example of India`s indigenous capabilities, and an illustration of his vision of Make in India. He recalled former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri`s slogan of "Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan" and said the slogan had inspired farmers to make India self-reliant in food production. He expressed hope that "Make in India" would inspire us to become self reliant in all our needs.

The Prime Minister also said the postal and railway networks of India could be leveraged to become drivers of rural development.

The Union Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhu, was present on the occasion.

PM calls for introspection on "Shiksha Ki Sanskriti" - the culture of education


The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today launched the Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching at the Swatantrata Bhawan in Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister described the land of Kashi, as one which gave us "Shiksha Ki Sanskriti" (a culture of education). We need to introspect whether we are losing this culture of education, the Prime Minister said. He said the education system is not meant to produce robots, but to develop a holistic humanist vision (Poorna Maanav Mann) along with science and technology.

Whenever humanity has entered the age of knowledge, India has played the role of Vishvaguru, the Prime Minister said, adding that the 21st century is therefore an age of immense responsibility for India, as the world is again entering the age of knowledge.

The Prime Minister said "good education" is in great demand across the world and among all sections of society. He said India`s youth can fulfil this global requirement of teachers, if they are trained effectively. He said if a teacher goes abroad, he benefits and captures the imagination of an entire generation. He said the Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching is a step in this direction.

The Prime Minister also unveiled the plaque of the Inter-University Centre, and launched the Campus Connect wi-fi of Banaras Hindu University by remote control.

The Prime Minister also launched the Varanasi Mahotsav. He gave away prizes to six craftsmen under the YUKTI initiative. Speaking about this initiative, the Prime Minister said it will make it possible to skill our craftsmen through the use of appropriate technology interventions.

The Prime Minister said events such as the Varanasi Mahotsav would help boost tourism. He called upon schools and educational institutions of Varanasi to develop expertise in various aspects of Varanasi`s rich culture, which would help them contribute towards drawing the attention of tourists visiting Varanasi. He said tourists would come to Varanasi, because of its ancient heritage, but would stay only if the people of Varanasi made the effort to showcase that heritage.

Describing the strength of India`s heritage, the Prime Minister spoke of the recent adoption of International Yoga Day by the United Nations. He said a record number of 177 countries had supported India`s resolution, and it had been adopted within a record time of 90 days.

The Prime Minister exhorted artists and poets to touch upon contemporary issues such as "swachhta" (cleanliness) and the welfare of the girl child, so that greater awareness is generated about these vital subjects, in the society.

Minister for Human Resource Development Smt. Smriti Irani and Union MoS (I/C) Shri Mahesh Sharma were also present on the occasion.

PM’s Message to the Nation on Good Governance

·    सुशासन - Good Governance is the key to a nation’s progress. Our government is committed to providing a transparent and accountable administration which works for the betterment and welfare of the common citizen.



·    “Citizen-First” is our mantra, our motto and our guiding principle. It has been my dream to bring government closer to our citizens, so that they become active participants in the governance process. During the last seven months, our government has been consistently working towards this goal. mygov.in and interact with PM  seek to  make this engagement meaningful. The unprecedented response which these initiatives have evoked, places a large responsibility upon us, and I assure you, my countrymen that we will not let you down.



·    An important step for Good Governance is simplification of procedures and processes in the Government so as to make the entire system transparent and faster.  The push towards self-certification in place of affidavits and attestations is another indicator of the relationship of trust between the citizens and the Government. Doing away with cumbersome and out-dated legislations which no longer have relevance is another focus area.  Already Appropriation Acts have been identified for repeal and more Acts are being reviewed.



·    Our government considers redress of public grievances as a very important component of a responsive administration. I have instructed all the Ministries to ensure that redress of public grievances receives the highest priority.



·    Government process re-engineering is yet another measure that we are pushing for. Ministries and Departments of the Government of India have been instructed to look into their work spheres, their internal processes and work on what and how to simplify and rationalise them. We are also working on a simpler internal work process manual, which would be delivered through an e-learning module.



·    I strongly believe that technology can and must bridge the divide between the government and the citizens. Technology is an empowering tool for the citizen and an accountability medium for the government. My government fully recognises the huge potential of this tool –Digital India aims to transform the country into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy.  Proposed to be implemented in phases, Digital India is transformational in nature and would ensure that Government services are available to citizens electronically.  It would also bring in greater accountability through mandated delivery of government’s services electronically.



·    The effort to usher in an era of सुशासन has just begun, and begun on a very promising note. An open and accountable administration is what we had promised to deliver and we will do so.



·    Today is the birthday of our beloved leader, our former PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. On this occasion, we reiterate our commitment towards providing transparent, effective and accountable governance to the people of this country. Let us embark on this mission for good governance together.



       Jai Hind.
