3. About the book And other major issues of poverty in India. It was 1991, when the GOI took the initiative for economic reforms in India by introduction the Liberalization Privatization and Globalization. This is the historical reference point from which we could look back at the various reforms in the Indian Economy. The President's address to Parliament has sought to put rest charges that the Narendra Modi government is pro-corporate, by unveiling propoor plans for eliminating poverty, fighting food inflation and providing urban facilities in rural areas. The blueprint of the government for the coming months also has a contingency plan for sub-normal monsoon, crop insurance and reforming the Public Distribution System. The thrust of the President's speech was Modi's economy revival plans and how this would help the middle class and the poor by creating more jobs and giving a boost to growth and development.
4. About the book The slogans given by Modi during the election campaign, "Ek Bharat, Shresht Bharat (One India, Great India)", "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas (Taking all together, progress of all) were highlighted in the speech. But the running theme of the speech was the fight to eradicate poverty and improve the condition of the poor. "Poverty has no religion, hunger has no creed, and despair has no geography. The greatest challenge before us is to end the curse of poverty in India. My government will not be satisfied with mere "poverty alleviation"; and commits itself to the goal of 'poverty elimination', Mukherjee said. This book also focuses on the Modi Mantra to create magical reforms in Rural Bharat and Chinese strategy to transform the Chinese rural sector.
