MUSCAT,

TAKING a dig at the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday night said India’s image had suffered due to a long  list of scams in the previous regime and his Government worked hard to change the “style of misgovernance”.
Addressing the Indian diaspora at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Oman’s capital where he arrived on Sunday evening on a two-day visit, Modi said that with the mantra of “minimum Government, maximum governance”, his Government was working to make the life of citizens easier.
“The country cannot progress in the 21st Century with a style of misgovernance.


The long list of scams (in previous regime) had harmed India’s image. We have worked hard to bring out the country from that phase of misgovernance,” he said.
Modi said his Government has scraped 1400-1450 outdated laws, made procedures simple, pays attention to people’s problems with sincerity and take action on them as part of efforts to change the culture of governance in new India.


“All of us are working towards a ‘new India’ where the poorest of the poor can strive to achieve their dream,” Modi told a cheering crowd during his hour-long speech.
“The people have already started to feel a change,” he said, amid chants of ‘Modi Modi’.
