New Delhi: Asserting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has demonstrated his “indefatigability” by “literally working round the clock,” Union minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday said therefore, the BJP has chosen an “effective” slogan for the forthcoming elections ‘Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai(Modi makes it possible).’

In an article on his Facebook page, the senior BJP leader said Mr Modi as a quick learner has demonstrated his ability to take quick decisions on complicated matters with clarity and determination.

The Prime Minister also retweeted the article and wrote: “With the blessings of 130 crore Indians, what was deemed impossible for decades, by successive governments, is now possible. Our unwavering commitment to public welfare has ensured outstanding results for all sections of society. A lot has been done and we aim to do much more!”

“His (Modi) image as a doer is now recognised by most Indians. Many India observers across the world have marvelled with India’s pace of taking decisions and implementing them. The BJP, therefore, has chosen an effective slogan for the forthcoming elections ‘Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai’ – ‘Modi makes it possible’,” said Mr Jaitley, who is heading the publicity commiitee of party’s for 2019 general elections.

Recalling some landmark achievements of the government, he said for the first time for five years in a row, India has remained the fastest growing major economy in the world and also a ‘sweet spot’ in the global economy.

“It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference. It is precisely for this reason that India will witness an election where people will get an opportunity to endorse Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, decisiveness, integrity and performance. Indeed he makes it possible,” the finance minister said.

Among other things, Mr Jaitley also said during Mr Modi’s premiership, India demonstrated through surgical strike of 2016 and air-strike of 2019 against Pakistan that it was willing to adopt unconventional methods of attacking terror at the point of its origin.     The other achievements of the government, he said, were bringing down inflation from 10.4 per cent during the UPA regime to 2.5 per cent presently, running an honest government and providing 10 per cent reservation in public employment and educational institutions for economically weaker sections in unreserved category.

“The above is only an illustrative list of the kinds of strides India is making. Has any government done more? It was the same governmental machinery, the same political system, the same implementation instruments that the government had at its disposal. It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference,” Mr Jaitley said.
