After Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the government system works through ABCD (Avoid, Bypass, Confuse, Delay), Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday criticised that the country has been trapped in a culture of “NAMO” since BJP came into power. Ramesh expanded the abbreviation “NAMO” as “No Action, Message Only.”
Criticising the present situation of government system, Modi has emphasised the need to change it from the existing culture of ABCD, which he expanded as Avoid, Bypass, Confuse, Delay, to a culture of “ROAD”, which Modi mentioned as Responsibility, Ownership, Accountability, Discipline” of success.
The statement of Modi paved the way for a controversy when Ramesh came up with another abbreviation as well as expansion of NAMO. He said, “Now ‘MODI’ stands for “Murder of Democratic India.” Meanwhile, Ramesh has also reacted against the decision of government over taking the ordinance route to implement major changes in the law.
Modi said “Government is generally trapped in ‘ABCD’ culture from top to bottom… Our effort is to move from this to ‘ROAD’. We are committed to moving towards this roadmap,” in a workshop on the “Make in India” campaign on Tuesday.
