Climate change

Climate change is just not a matter of policies in India. Sustainable climate practices have become a part of the lives of India's people. We have made over 10 cr toilets in the country. Now people understand their duty to keep the country clean.

Democracy and diversity

We Indians are proud of our democracy. Today, we can proudly say that India is the mother of democracy... The diversity of culture, food, clothes, music and traditions makes our democracy vibrant. India has shown that democracy can deliver and has delivered.

Developement

Today, every village in our country is open defecation free, has electricity and 99% of the villages also have clean cooking fuel. India is providing free ration to 80 crore poor people since last 2 years. In India now we have a unicorn every 10 days

Emergency

Today is June 26 which is also known for the day when India's democracy that's is in DNA of every Indian was trampled and suppressed 47 years ago. Emergency was a black spot on the vibrant history of India's democracy

Industrial revolution

In last century, Germany & other countries took benefit from the industrial revolution. India was a slave back then that's why it couldn't leverage benefits. But now India will not be left behind in 4th industrial revolution, it's now leading the world.

There was a time when India was nowhere in the race of startups. Today, we are the third-largest startup ecosystem. Similarly, we used to import even the simplest phones, today, we are the second-largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world
