NewZNew (New Delhi) : Inaugurating the 13th edition of the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit at New Delhi, Honorable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi said that the country is well on its way on the path of success. He said that in the present global scenario, India is the fastest growing economy. The growth has been evident in the surveys released by the World Bank. He praised Odisha, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh for their impressive rankings in these surveys. He said that in the current scenario, execution remains the key to success for a government.
Shri Narendra Modi said that a stable government is a boon in itself. Hence the credit for all the good work that has been carried out by the government, rests with the people for choosing this government. He further said that the onus of development now lies with the central and the state governments. It is only when the two forces collaborate; it would lead to ‘wholesome’ development.
In his speech, Shri Modi stressed on the need to promote exports from the country. He said that India is known to most of the world because of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad and Bangalore post the technological revolution. However, India has a lot more to offer. He said that the state government needs to play a major role in giving the exports the required push.
Shri Narendra Modi focused on the alternative ways of achieving development. He talked about the initiative where instead of producing electricity in a new plant, the government signed an MoU with 100 cities for the ‘LEDfication’ at the industrial and household level. The initiative is slated to save as much as 21,500 MW electricity thus saving money and raw materials. He drew similar parallels in the context of LPG subsidies as well.
The Hindustan Times Leadership Summit is a platform for the men and women who shape our tomorrow to converge under one roof. A place where visionaries lay out their blueprint for the future of the nation. It’s where the pioneers from different walks of life share a common stage and debate the way forward for our society as a whole. Heads of state, business tycoons, Nobel laureates and your favourite artists rub shoulders with each other. Anybody invited to the summit is not just the audience but a partner, a critical component of the machine that churns out the ideas for our collective future.
It is not only the speakers who make the Summit one of a kind. The audience, composed entirely of invitees, is drawn from the powerful, the best and the brightest. The man sitting at the next table may be a world leader. The person who gets up to ask a question could be our finance minister.
The impact of the Summit is magnified in each session with separate media interviews of the speakers, where they go into greater depth on their thoughts on several issues. So watch the world being explained before your eyes. Let the movers and shakers share their thoughts and open their hearts.
