Referring to the row over Amit Shah's son's company turnover spike, he said: "Will Modi Government use the "Shah-Jaada" model to increase the economic growth of India?"

"Efforts have to be comprehensive and "outcome-driven" not "output-driven".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a gathering to commemorate birth anniversaries of social activist and Padma Vibhushan awardee Nanaji Deshmukh and Indian Independence activist Jayarakash Narayan in New Delhi on Wednesday.The Prime Minister paid tributes to them and spoke about how both of them devoted their lives towards the betterment of our nation. There should be no dilution or diversion from the spirit in which it was conceived. "We have to adhere to a timeline for completion", he said. "The poison of casteism destroys the village and crushes its dreams", Modi said.

Explaining the impact of good governance, he said poorer states have fewer jobs under the government's flagship rural employment scheme- MNREGA- as compared to states which are better off.

"We need to make efforts so that the villages rise above casteism and become inclusive and cohesive".

Modi added that if the villages have 24-hour power and water supply and were connected with optical cable for Internet, teachers, doctors and bureaucrats will come forward on their own to work there.

Three Men Charged for Plotting to Terrorize New York City
He also admitted to sending materials through the mail and traveling from Canada to the United States as part of the plot. All three men were charged with seven terror-related counts, including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction.

He added that the "facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages".

"I bow to the venerable Loknayak JP on his Jayanti. JP was never interested in power politics", he said. "At that time, standing shoulder to shoulder with him was Nanaji Deshmukh, who took the blow to protect him", Modi said.

"Loknayak JP fought against corruption".

"The Prime Minister also remembered Nanaji Deshmukh and said that the country was "motivated" by his service". It includes information on rural development at the Panchayat level in regional languages.

Congress spokesperson RPN Singh told reporters here that the Prime Minister's Economic Advisory Council was an "institution" created to guide on a serious and complicated subject like economy which affects the daily lives of crores of common people, adding the PMEAC had emminent economists like Suresh Tendulkar and C. Rangrarajan during the Congress-led UPA government.
