In a letter to the citizens of the country on completing a year of his second term. PM Narendra Modi wrote that this day last year began a golden chapter in the history of Indian democracy.
In 2019, the people of India voted not merely for continuity but also with a dream- of taking India to new heights. A dream of making India a global leader. The decisions taken in the last one year are directed at fulfilling this dream.
He mentioned further,”In the last one year, some of the decisions were widely discussed and remain etched in public discourse. The decision on Article 370 furthered the spirit of national unity and integration. The Ram Mandir judgment, delivered unanimously by the Honourable Supreme Court of India, brought an amicable end to a debate persisting for centuries. The barbaric practice of Triple Talaq has been confined to the dustbin of history.
Amendment to the Citizenship Act was an expression of India’s compassion and spirit of inclusiveness.” “The creation of the post of the Chief of Defence Staff was a long pending reform that has improved coordination among the armed forces. At the same time, India has stepped up preparations for Mission Gaganyaan.” He added “Empowering the poor, farmers, women and youth has remained our priority.”
