100 days of Govt just a trailer, full movie yet to come: Modi
PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the 100 days of his Government’s work was just a trailer and the entire film is yet to come. “The 100 days work of the Government is just a trailer and the movie is yet to come. Those who were thinking that they are above the law are seeking bail now. I am working on what I had promised.
I had promised a Kamdaar (working) and Damdaar (effective) Government,” said Modi while launching three national level schemes here on Thursday. He said, “In 100 days, Muslim women have been given their right and triple talaq law has been implemented. The anti-terror law has been made more stringent, the work for development of Jammu and Kashmir has been initiated. Those who were plundering people have been sent to the right place (Jail). And what we had promised to farmers is being delivered”. Modi termed the recently concluded monsoon session of Parliament as historic for which he thanked the Members of Parliament (MPs) and political parties.
He said that important bills were passed during the session. “Jharkhand has become the launching pad for national level schemes. In September last year, the world’s biggest health scheme Ayushman Bharat was launched from the same Prabhat Tara ground. Today three national level schemes have been launched. This will give a new identity to Jharkhand”, said Modi.
