Modi government makes policies that benefit people: Amit Shah

The Narendra Modi government does not make policies that appeal to people but rather those that benefit them, Union Home minister Amit Shah said on Wednesday.

Shah was speaking at the launch of the book Modi @ 20: Dreams Meet Delivery at Vigyan Bhavan. The book, funded by BlueCraft Digital Foundation and published by Rupa, is an anthology of 21 articles written by eminent people, including Amit Shah, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, NSA Ajit Doval, Infosys’ Nandan Nilekani and Sudha Murty, Uday Kotak of Kotak Mahindra Bank and shuttler PV Sindhu, among others.

“He is never in a hurry on policy-making. But his determination to implement them amazes even the best. Many wonder how he can stand his ground despite so much opposition. The Modi government does not take decisions that will please people. It takes decisions that are for the good of the people,” Shah said at the event.

The event had Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu as the chief guest and Shah and Jaishankar among the speakers apart from Naidu. It also saw all key cabinet ministers in attendance, apart from senior bureaucrats and Bollywood personalities like Karan Johar, Siddharth Malhotra and Shankar Mahadevan.
