New Delhi, July 5: Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said that the GST rollout and re-monetization are among the major bold initiatives of the Central Government. These initiatives could be carried forward successfully because of the people’s faith in the sincerity and commitment of the PM Modi.

Addressing the 43rd Advanced Professional Programme in Public Administration organized by the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA), he said even though the GST exercise went on for over a decade and neither Prime Minister nor the present government denies credit to the preceding PM and their governments for their contribution.

The facts on record would always bear out that what could not be accomplished in over a decade was made possible within three years simply because of sincere and transparent approach of the present Government and diligently conducted deliberations, he added.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that in spite of initial hardships, the people chose to stand by the Prime Minister’s decision of re-monetization because; they trusted that, in the long run, this would be to their benefit and help the future of their children.

He further said that any future agenda or policy planning will have to be based on the aspirations of the youth of the country. He also suggested that the training programs in Public Administration should keep on board youth representatives whose inputs could determine the agenda, both for governance as well as public service.
