Government adding new paradigm to PPP, says Modi


New Delhi, Dec 30  Prime Minister Narendra Modi said his government was adding a new paradigm to the public private partnership (PPP) model by involving all stakeholders in key decision-making processes.

Addressing a workshop on ‘Make in India’ here, Modi said the workshop not only discussed the concerns of various stakeholders but also took steps to find ways to collectively address them.

“The government had hitherto operated in secrecy, but this workshop was an example of openness, and working together to achieve desired goals,” he said.

The prime minister said this was an example of his vision of “minimum government, maximum governance”.

“The decisions taken at this workshop would have taken years in normal course,” he said.

Modi said one of his main goals was to break down the silos in which the government operated.

Recalling the ‘Make in India’ launch in September, he said that in the last three months, the government machinery has geared up, and was now ready to change rules and laws, and speed up processes.

He said he wished to change the ‘ABCD’ culture of government – “Avoid, Bypass, Confuse, Delay” and change it to the ‘ROAD’ to success – “Responsibility, Ownership, Accountability, Discipline”.

“Human resource development, innovation and research should become part of the government’s DNA,” he said.

Modi called upon all sectors of manufacturing in the country to take inspiration from the space sector and the achievements of India’s space scientists.

He said growth should be balanced across the country and special efforts should be made to ensure that the east, which is rich in natural resources, should be as developed as the western part of the country.

He called for making a globally recognised “Brand India” famous for “Zero Defect, Zero Effect” manufacturing – free from defects, and with no adverse impact on the environment.

He said he wanted maximum movement of men, money, machinery, materials and minerals across the country.
