On ‘Good Governance Day’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said efforts are being made to re-engineer government processes to provide an ‘open and accountable administration’.
“An open and accountable administration is what we had promised to deliver and we will do so…. I assure you, my countrymen that we will not let you down,” Modi said in a message on ‘Good Governance Day’ being celebrated on the 90th birthday of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
“Today is the birthday of our beloved leader, our former PM Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee. On this occasion, we reiterate our commitment towards providing transparent, effective and accountable governance to the people of this country. Let us embark on this mission for good governance together,” he said.
The Prime Minister said the government is working on a simpler internal work process manual, which would be delivered through an e-learning module.
“Ministries and Departments have been instructed to look into their work spheres, their internal processes and work on how to simplify and rationalise them,” he said.
Describing ‘Citizen-First’ as the government’s ‘mantra, motto and guiding principle’, Modi said, “It has been my dream to bring government closer to our citizens, so that they become active participants in the governance process.”
During the last seven months, the government has been consistently working towards this goal, he said.
