PM Modi to attend Vesak Day celebrations in Sri Lanka

Prime Minister Modi elaborated further and said: "Earlier, the government was nearly the sole provider of goods and services, which left a lot of scope for ignoring one's shortcomings".

The Prime Minister was speaking on the occasion of civil services day, and while addressing the bureaucrats, Modi asked them to break the shackles and work as a team to transform and perform as well.

Calling for change in working style, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday asked bureaucrats to get out of regulator mode and become enablers to ensure that every policy implementation becomes outcome centric.

Talking about political will, Modi said: "I do not lack it. may be I have a bit extra".

However, he further cautioned officers that the use of social media should not lead to a decline in this strength, even as social media and mobile governance are leveraged for connecting people to benefits and government schemes.

"If I am informing the people about dates of polio vaccination through social media, saying that they should come out on a particular date for the vaccination, then it (social media) is helpful".

"I see these days that district-level officers are so busy, busy, that most of their time goes into it (social media)".

"In fact, in my meetings I have banned the entry of mobiles, otherwise anyone would take out (their mobile) and start", he said with a chuckle.

"It is my good luck that I am in public service for the past 16 years.I did not get the chance to attend coaching", he said, and then turned to his principal secretary Nripendra Mishra who was also on the dais. "On this day, we need to think that do we accept our weakness or somebody running away from his responsibilities? But we need to realise that the power that is available should be used for public welfare, should used for public good and not something that comprises anonymity", he said. "But now they have an alternative", Prime Minister Modi said.

Recalling that the year 2022 would mark 75 years of independence, he urged civil servants to play the role of catalytic agents in fulfilling the dreams of freedom fighters.
