Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said the Modi government has taken decisions that are good for the people and not which people would like, even at the cost of political damage.

Addressing a function organised on the occasion of Good Governance Day, Shah said people have long been waiting for good governance which was delivered by the Modi government in the last seven years. "People have kept saying that we have got independence (swaraj) long ago but when will we get good governance (su-raaj)," he said.

Shah said because of lack of good governance, people's faith in the country's democratic system is gradually eroding. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought back people's faith in democracy by taking the good governance up to the grassroots level, he said. According to Shah, people have realised that Modi came to power in 2014 not to run the government but to provide a clean, transparent and welfare administration, thus changing the face of the country.

He said people's faith in democracy has enhanced since 2014 as they started getting benefits of development undertaken by the Modi government. "Before 2014, many governments have changed. Many governments have come, many have gone. But when Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, people realised that his government has come not to run the government but to change the country," he said.

Shah said some earlier governments on some occasions took decisions keeping the vote banks in mind. "But Prime Minister Narendra Modi or the Modi government has never taken decisions which the people would like (jo logon ko acche lagen). He has taken decisions which are good for the people. (jo logon ke liye achhe hon). There is a big difference between the two. Some decisions may bring you popularity for a short time but this means keeping the country in problems," he said.

The home minister said Modi took everyone along and made the efforts of making good governance a reality. Giving an example of good governance, he said there has not been a single corruption charge against the Modi government in the last seven years as it is a clean and transparent administration. Shah said in the last seven years, the government has taken the benefits of development to 60 crore people who were otherwise deprived of all welfare programmes in the last so many decades.

He said the Modi government has provided toilets to the poor, constructed houses, given electricity and gas connections free of cost. Shah said the government has framed such policies through which the problems could be rooted out. He said there should always be a government which is sensitive and accountable to the people. "People should have faith in the government and at the same time government should have faith in the people.
