In this fifth segment of Narendra Modi’s interview to Swarajya, the Prime Minister explains what he meant by Minimum Government, Maximum Governance, and how ease of doing business is improving under his leadership. (Read the previous part here.)
Swarajya: Before 2014, you talked of Minimum Government, Maximum Governance? Can you expand on how you have moved towards this goal? What exactly did you mean by this phrase?
Modi: I have always believed, and said it on multiple occasions, that less dependence on governments is the way ahead.
A government needs to maximise productivity and optimise processes. It has to play the role of an enabler and not an obstructer.
We have translated this philosophy into action over the last four years. Technology plays an important role in achieving this aim.
The end objective of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ is to make the lives of people hassle-free, often by removing the hindrances a government can create and to let people achieve their full potential.
