On April 8th 2013, Shri Narendra Modi addressed Network18’s Think India Dialogue on ‘Why India Needs Less Government & More Governance. 

Mr. Sanjay Pugalia, Editor, CNBC Awaaz introduced the topic for Shri Modi’s address. Mr. Raghav Bahl, founder, Network18, introduced Shri Modi by saying ‘he is one of the few Indian leaders that advocates smaller government with more governance.’

Below are excerpts from Shri Modi’s speech.

“I hope that this initiative by Mr. Bahl and his team works towards giving something to the country and its people,”

 

In India, desire for power is too high

 

“Sometimes when there is talk of a minimum government one of the topics brought up is the size of the government. I don’t want people to be sacked from their jobs. I endorse having the right size of government.”

If things are arranged properly, direction is given, there is a mechanism for feedback then things will work properly,

“However, it is our nation’s misfortune that everyone just wants to come to power, In India, desire for power is too high.”

Government systems work under political pressure, which affects governance

“Every year there is some election being held and because of that political parties are not willing to take a decision”

“In the government this has a major impact. Decisions are put off, not taken in order to hold on to power,”

“In my experience we have to think about this issue, there were roads, buses and people but if it was investigated it would be found that few states have rationalised routes. Because political pressures the routes are constantly reorganised leading people to believe it isn’t working properly.”

“Our systems work under political pressure as a result of which they don’t work well and faith is eroded in state mechanisms,”

Governance fails, when people lose faith in government services

“When faith in the government no longer exists people search for alternative routes,
This affects the legal framework under which society operates and affects governance further.”

“People have more faith in god than in governments because of reliability. People believe in God because whatever services he works on, they are delivered efficiently. This is not seen in the case of government or its services,”

“Government has damaged its own credibility. Nobody lights lamps in anticipation of a late sunrise. Nobody burns god’s effigies at night (because the sun has not arrived yet).”

“People send text messages to their friends and then call to ask if they received it. This indicates trust issues as well. “

Government systems have evolved, they have not been imposed upon people. Systems continue to evolve. What we have right now is not the ultimate.

“Government systems have evolved, they have not been imposed upon people. Systems continue to evolve. What we have right now is not the ultimate.”

“We were celebrating Urban Development Year. One thing came to mind- the board is elected feels – let’s get jobs for our friends. So people put their people. They lose another comes they also put their people. Thus size of Govt. increases.”

“The primary work done by a Nagar palika is not clerical, it is technical. So staff numbers keep increasing and the number of skills between them stays low.”.

“Gujarat had released Rs 7,000 crore for urban development with caveats to ensure the right size of civic bodies, which resulted in them hiring more technical staff and improving efficiency.”

“There was a shortage of technical graduates due to the infrastructure works in Gujarat.The government introduced an internship scheme within civic bodies as well with engineers so that technical posts would be filled.”

Various commissions not improving governance

See how things work- Human Right Commission…due to political reasons we made a different women commission, SC ST commission. Now if a woman or Minority goes to NHRC he or she will be told go there. I am not opposing commissions- but we can strengthen institutions

“We increased the number of commissions but not their efficiency; it is to pander to certain groups that various commissions were formed.”

“We have, in effect, broken our primary institutions. We need to emphasise the core of such institutions.”

“We think that we are givers and people are just receivers. It is a crime. When the country is ours and the people ours why should those in power be giving things,”

“We think that we are givers and people are just receivers. It is a crime. When the country is ours and the people ours why should those in power be giving things,”

“There is a need to have a change in the way society perceives itself. The government was like the traffic signal, which needed to be obeyed but was not.

“If people obeyed traffic lights then there wouldn’t be the need of a traffic policeman. Because people don’t listen to the government there is more burden placed on it to ensure laws are followed.”

Mera kya (What is there in it for me) and Mujhe Kya (Why should I be bothered are ruining the country

“A few words have ruined us. No matter what happens we say: mera kya or if something doesn’t concern them they say mujhe kya

“When it comes to Government schools or Government hospitals, People don’t think that this is my school or my hospital, when it is their own scooter people polish it before use, but if they’re travelling in a government bus then we gradually scratch at the seat of the bus.”

If we want to implement good governance, we must look to P4 — people private public partnership

“Good governance is defined by public-private partnership. If we want to implement good governance, we must look to P4 — people private public partnership. People should be kept in the loop by the government.
