PM Narendra Modi has said that the aim of all his economic policies is the empowerment of poor in the country. In an interview to Times Now, PM Modi said that every scheme is centered around how the poorest of poor will benefit.
“My development parameter is very simple. It is about how the poorest of the poor can benefit from development,” he said. “All our schemes are meant to empower the poor and change the quality of life,” he said. “Mahatma Gandhi spoke of empowering the poor. Poor can’t be kept poor, they need to be empowered to emerge out of poverty,” he added.
PM went on to say, “We believe in Antyodaya, inspired by the ideals of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.”
Talking about his government’s achievements, the Prime Minister said, “You must have seen that the maximum electricity generation since Independence has occurred this year.”
