PM welcomes constructive criticism, says


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said he takes constructive criticism and evaluation of the performance of his Government by every yardsticks as an "healthy sign" and said for an awakened nation such "churning" is all the more important. "Constructive criticism strengthens democracy; for an aware nation, an awakened nation, this churning is very important," Prime Minister Modi said in his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat' programme broadcast through All India Radio. Stating that the works done by his government during last three years has been "tested on every touch stone", he said, there have been many surveys and several opinion polls. "I see this entire process as a very healthy sign. It (performance of his government) was analysed by every segment of society. And this is a great process in democracy. I firmly believe that governments must be accountable in democracy and the public at large must be provided with report card of works done," he said. Complimenting everyone who undertook "in depth analysis", he also said there were "some praises". "I understand the importance of all these things. I thank those people, who provided critical and important feedback. The mistakes and the shortcomings once highlighted can be rectified," he said. The Prime Minister's remarks came two days after the completion of three years of his government. It was on May 26, 2014 Mr Modi had taken over the reins of governance after BJP had won a landslide victory. During last few days, the Government's performance on alleged failure to provide jobs and other issues like right-wing polarisation, communalism in politics, attacks on Dalit and other such issues have come under attack by the opposition parties. "It is a season of pink slip," Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi has said about so called job-less growth. Prime Minister said, "Whether something is good, little less effective or bad, whatever it is, one has to learn from it and move ahead in life putting the learning from it into practice".
