Modi redefined, refined and reoriented reforms with a focus on the vulnerable

Without the ultimate consumer of goods and services — the citizen — no reform can survive, industry can’t sustain itself, markets can’t expand, exports won’t surge, farmers won’t proposer, and India’s growth story can’t continue. And that is why the definition of reforms must be broad and take into account the most vulnerable.

After he assumed power in Delhi, the electorate saw Modi as a mass leader, and may not have expected much by way of reforms. But to achieve his goals, PM Modi streamlined administration, underpinning his philosophy of minimum government and maximum governance. He got rid of corruption and provided a clean governance model.
