Bengaluru, Apr 3: The Modi government is here to stay for 10-20 years, BJP President Amit Shah asserted today, claiming that the new dispensation has ended the "reign of scams" and policy paralysis while changing the political culture in the country.
"Modi 'sarkar' (government) has arrived and will be in power for next 10-20 years. It will change the face of India," he said while addressing the party's National Executive. Shah lauded the 10 months of Narendra Modi government, saying it has brought a perceptive change in the system of governance by bringing in transparency and has ended the policy paralysis.
He said the Ministers were now empowered unlike in the past when even the Prime Minister was not. He said the BJP government had ended the "reign of scams seen during the 10-year UPA rule.... There is not a whiff of scam now," he said.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought in a new political culture and changed the atmosphere. The policy paralysis is over," he said. Citing the record revenue earned by the public exchequer in coal and spectrum auctions, he said the Modi dispensation's good governance was reflected in the complete transparency witnessed in the auctions which he described as a big attack on corruption.
He also termed as a "great success" of Indian diplomacy the United Nation's declaration of June 21 as International Yoga Day, saying it was because of the pro-active steps taken by Prime Minister.
