Modi-led Govt committed to strengthening democratic institutions at grassroots levels: Randhawa

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Sept 24: Former Legislator and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vikram Randhawa said that Narendra Modi-led Government is committed to strengthening democratic institutions at grassroots levels and expanding their orbit to empower people to draw the blueprints of development.
“The three-tier and fully empowered Panchayati Raj system became a reality during the Modi-led government. It was during his tenure that these bodies were rejuvenated by giving decision-making and financial powers to them. Good governance demands respect for human rights, rule of law, strengthening of democracy, promoting transparency and capacity in public administration. The vehicle that was most ideal to initiate both political and economic democracy at the grassroots level is the Panchayat Raj system. Revitalization of the Panchayati system remains a top priority on the Modi’s to-do list”, Randhawa said while addressing preparation meeting for the upcoming Panchayat elections in the Union Territory of Jammu in Panchayat Dharap of RS Pura Jammu South Assembly Segment, here today.
“Central Government is providing Rs 6000 per year to a farmer family, which the successive Governments in the Centre failed during their tenures”, he said, adding that Prime Minister realised the problems of the farmers and initiated Prahan Mantri Kissan Samman Nidhi.
Under this scheme, the Central Government is depositing Rs 6000 per year in every farmers account.
Farmers are the back bone of a country and their efforts are being hailed as they work towards the country to make it hunger free, Randhawa said and applauded the Prime Minister for launching Pradhan Mantri Kissan Samman Nidhi for the benefit of the farmers.
“Apart from exercising their franchise in elections, the young voters should encourage others around them to participate in the process. They should join hands with the administration to spread electoral awareness among the people and persuade their friends who have completed 18 years to get their names included in the electoral rolls,” Randhawa said.
"For political systems to be representative, all parts of society must be included. When young people are disenfranchised or disengaged from political processes, a significant portion of the population has little or no voice or influence in decisions that affect group members’ lives. A key consequence is the undermining of political systems’ representativeness", Former Legislator stated.
He said that to make a difference in the longer term, it is essential that young people are engaged in formal political processes and have a say in formulating today’s and tomorrow’s politics, adding that inclusive political participation is not only a fundamental political and democratic right but also is crucial to building stable and peaceful societies and developing policies that respond to the specific needs of younger generations.
"For young people to be adequately represented in political institutions, processes, and decision-making, and in particular in elections, they must know their rights and be given the necessary knowledge and capacity to participate in a meaningful way at all levels", he stated.
"In new and emerging democracies, the inclusion of young people in formal political processes is important from the start. Young people’s active contributions can bring democratic values to life, leading to the overturning of authoritarian practices", Former Legislator added.
The people assured the visiting leader of their support to Modi led Government in the forthcoming elections as they were also of the view that Narendra Modi led Central Government has launched many schemes for the benefit of the masses.
