Modi 3.0 Needs to Focus on Employment

Shivangi Juneja, who is pursuing Chartered Accountancy course, shares her views on the expectations from the newly elected government in its third term

The NDA Government has come into power yet again, but this time it has been a hard earned victory. ‘With more power comes greater responsibility’, making it imperative for the newly elected government to relentlessly work towards the nation’s growth. As a country where the people have the right to decide who will form the Government, we bestow a duty upon the elected leadership to abide by the fundamental premise of a democracy – of the people, by the people and for the people. Being the most liberating form of Government, it is quite apparent for us to expect the administration to outperform its previous virtues and overcome the setbacks.

One of the most crucial aspects that affects people all across the country is how to sustain themselves amidst the rising inflation coupled with a constantly evolving economy. The Coronavirus outbreak brought in a lot of chaos, uncertainty and instability leaving myriads of people unemployed. Businesses were also shut down as a consequence of unsettled overheads, besides other reasons. To top it all, companies like Amazon, Google and the like, laid off tons of people and this trend continues. This leads us to the fact that both job creation and job security are absolutely essential.

To bring about equilibrium in the economy, the government should strive to create more job opportunities and provide aid to people willing to set up businesses by providing financial assistance, technical support, tax concessions and regulating the demand and supply of goods. Though artificial intelligence and machine learning are rapidly burgeoning, it is extremely important to acknowledge that they have been devised to assist rather than to replace humans.

The past four years exemplify how significant it is to have a robust and extensive healthcare infrastructure. Technological advancements enable timely detection of a number of maladies, albeit the possible effects of the same are still unprecedented. This emphasizes the need for competent doctors, medical staff, and sufficiently equipped hospitals. The government by all means needs to exercise prudence and vigilance to ensure that people from all walks of life have access to adequate and affordable healthcare facilities. This will enable the public to get the right treatment in time and reduce susceptibility to unfortunate consequences.

While it would not be empirical for the government to swerve from the education system, which has been in place for a long time, amendments to the current approach are necessary. The education system plays a pivotal role in shaping how we think, act and react customarily. To cite an example, the government had introduced the National Education Policy in the Year 2020 to bring about reforms in the educational sector. The said Policy highlights the changes required to be made to the school curriculum by adopting a holistic approach to education and includes the conglomeration of Technology and Learning. This shift reflects a positive step towards growth and progression.

In addition to the proposed changes, incorporating real life skills at both school and college level can prove to be immensely helpful. A lot of people struggle with managing money, dealing with stress, doing daily chores and one of the plausible reasons could be the lack of appropriate know-how. If children and young adults are made familiar with these skills at an early age, they would be able to function more independently and effectively.
