As the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) completes 25 years of its glorious journey, the imprint of its historic contribution to the nation’s life can be seen everywhere. It has not only been able to get the blessings of millions of people; it has also strengthened the faith of the poor in the political system of the country and raised the hopes of the people with newfound confidence. While opening the doors of new opportunities for the people, the NDA is today fulfilling their aspirations by creating the atmosphere of immense possibilities that India represents. In addition to providing political stability to the country, it has given a new direction to the nation with novel ideas and new initiatives. The mantra Nation First, which guides the policies of the NDA, has led to a long-term vision for the country with many measures that are propelling India to the forefront globally. From the day it was formed to today, it has been able to unleash the potential of this great nation while powering it with new energy and dynamism. Today, under the visionary and strong leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, India has experienced an unparalleled transformation in the last nine years, registering immense progress in almost every sector. India is now seen as an achiever, and its potential is being applauded and acknowledged globally, earning it a special place in the eyes of international agencies and experts.

While the launch of Chandrayan-3 represents the spirit of India, which believes in relentlessly pursuing its goals, Indian scientists have once again made the nation proud. The Chandrayan-3 not only represents the hopes and dreams of the nation; it also shows the commitment of the nation towards humanity at large and the urge of every Indian to embark on the journey of exploration, discovery, and invention. As the heart of every Indian is filled with pride with the launch of Chandrayan-3, the recent news of a record 13.5 crore people moving out of multidimensional poverty has further strengthened the faith of the people in the policies and programmes of the Modi government. As per the NITI Aayog report, between 2015-16 and 2019-21, India has registered a remarkable decline from 24.85% to 14.96%, and more important is that rural India has seen the fastest decline. The NITI Aayog report is in fact an approval of the huge success of the pro-poor, pro-farmer, and pro-labour policies of the Modi government, which are bringing huge transformation in the hitherto neglected villages and rural economies, thereby strengthening the base of the Indian economy. It indicates the fact that not only is the income of the poor increasing, but the rural and poor populace is now being empowered with electricity connections, access to bank accounts, potable water, and better education and health facilities. The commitment of the BJP to the principles of ‘Antyodaya’ is getting reflected in the indices showing a fast reduction of poverty in the country.
As Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi said that the NDA today stands for New India, Developed India, and Aspiration of people and regions, its last 25 years are inspiring the nation and coming 25 years will see the emergence of a ‘Viksit Bharat’. In the period of ‘Amritkaal’, the dream of achieving ‘Aatmnirbharata’ and becoming a developed nation may only be realised through the NDA. While the Congress led alliance is turning out to be an ‘alliance in compulsion’, the NDA represents an ‘alliance of contribution’ wherein every political party has come to contribute to the process of nation building. The NDA has the responsibility to take India forward in the ‘Amritkaal’ by defeating the divisive and regressing forces in the society and by channelizing the creative energy of the nation. Today, the NDA represents the aspirations of New India.
