On assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi realised that shutting down the MNREGS (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Scheme) was not practical.
PM Modi while delivering a speech in Parliament in the year 2015 stated “Sometimes it is said that you have stopped MNREGS …. In one subject you must believe that my political understanding is fair enough……. My political understanding guide me to never let MNREGA be stopped, I can’t make such a mistake since MNREGA is a living spark of your (Congress) failures.”
He added “Even after 60 years of independence, you had to send people to dig pits, this is a memorial of your failures. I will keep publicize it ever after.”
“I will tell the people that the pits you are digging are the result of the last 60 years.” So do not doubt my political understanding. MNREGA will remain there with all the pride (Taunts Congress) however we will add whatever would then be necessary to improve it further”
