New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said government schemes such as Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and electricity and water connections, which gave a sense of security to the poor, are now driving the country’s development.

Addressing the Republic Summit here, PM Modi also said that some people are angry with him because he has closed the way for them to do corruption and earn money.

He said that his government has integrated and institutionalized the approach against corruption and there were no half measures and isolated actions. “Some people are bound to abuse me (for this),” he said.

He said that schemes like DBT and ensuring the poor have access to electricity, water, toilets have brought a revolution at the grassroots level and filled even the poorest of the poor with a sense of security and dignity.

The Prime Minister said, “Those who were made to believe that they were a burden on the development of the country, are today driving the story of development.”

PM Modi said that his government was ridiculed by many when public welfare schemes were unveiled, but the same initiatives were driving India’s development.

The Prime Minister said, “The poor people are now convinced that they will get their due, this is social justice in the true sense.”

PM Modi said that the story of change of New India is both timeless and futuristic.
