Bengaluru Tech Summit: Digital India has become a way of life: PM Modi

November 19, 2020

Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said Digital India is no longer being seen as any regular Government initiative but it has become a way of life.

Speaking after inaugurating ‘Bengaluru Tech Summit’ through video-conferencing this morning, he said thanks to Digital India, the nation has witnessed a more human-centric approach to development.  Using technology on such a large scale has brought about several life changes for our citizens. The benefits are for everyone to see. The  Government has successfully created a market for digital and tech solutions, but it has made technology a key part of all schemes, he said.

“Our governance model is technology first. Through technology, we have enhanced human dignity.  Millions of farmers receive monetary support in one click. At the peak of Covid-19 lockdown, it was technology that ensured that India’s poor received proper and quick assistance.  The scale of this relief has few parallels. If India is successfully operating the world’s largest Healthcare scheme, Ayushman Bharat, it is due to a big role of technology.  This scheme has specially helped the poor of India.  Now, they no longer have to worry about access to top quality and affordable healthcare in any part of India.” 

He said the Government of India has used the power of data analytics to ensure better service delivery and efficiency.  Internet came to India around 25 years ago. As per a report, the number of internet connections recently crossed the 750 million milestone. Over half of these numbers joined in the last four years only. Technology is the prime reason the schemes have gone beyond files and changed lives  of people at such a speed and scale. Today, when they are able to help the poor build their home at an unprecedented scale, it was due to technology.

    PM Modi just a bit of a problem-500 million Indians are living in slums, infant mortality rate very high, tap water full of bacteria, roadside are lavatories, etc,, There is no universal healthcare free at the point of delivery like in France, Germany and the rest of Europe. Indians are buying Apple products made in China and apps too!
    But there is a glimmer of hope. Karnataka BJP CM Yedi travels on helicopter, made journeys to Mysuru during the Dasara , which you allowed to proceed. Yedi used the tech product, the helicopter to make journeys to Mysuru a few times in just 2 days during the Dasara!

    India’s problems like healthcare, clean drinking water, Covid-19 pandemic etc.. do not need high tech solutions at all. All this Bebgaluru high tech companies do is use cheap IT labour by Western standards to do software coding work for big high tech Western companies. These are IT sweat shops. They do not innovate anything
    While Modi is prattling this nonsense,, his fellow Indians are downloading apps for cell phones, buy electronic products etc.. etc… from China.
