Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mantra of ‘Minimum Government, Maximum Governance’ has worked since he assumed office in May 2014. Narendra Modi’s concept of minimum government and maximum governance is said to have changed the way the government functions in his home state of Gujarat , making it more efficient. He describes the model as ‘more of development politics’ and similar to a ‘one day’ cricket match. He has indicated that he is keen to replicate this model at the national level.
Prof MD Nalapat, candidly writing about this in his latest blog, opines that Narendra Modi was elected to power on a break with the Nehruvian “slow speed” past, and for this to happen, not just the PMO but key ministries such as HRD, Defence, Commerce, Energy, Home and Finance need to act as prime movers. So, right now, what India needs is minimum 50 percent of Modipower and key ministers of the Government to contribute at least 50% of the efficiency shown by PM Modi himself.
He adds that in the meantime, what is needed is for the Prime Minister to each day take forward his promise of Minimum Government and Maximum Governance.
