Day 1 of Modi 3.0

After assuming office for a third term, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the officials of the PMO for the first time. Emphasizing dedication, he stated, "We are not bound by time. Our work doesn't adhere to strict office hours. We have no limits to our thinking or criteria for our efforts. This is my team, and the country trusts it."

Earlier, PM Modi arrived at the South Block to take charge for his third term. His first action was signing a file authorizing the release of the 17th instalment of PM Kisan Nidhi, benefiting 9.3 crore farmers with a distribution of approximately Rs 20,000 crores.

Additionally, in its first cabinet meeting, the new government decided to assist in constructing 3 crore rural and urban houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). Over the past decade, a total of 4.21 crore houses have been completed for eligible poor families under this scheme. All PMAY-constructed houses come with essential amenities, including household toilets, LPG connections, electricity, and functional household taps, through convergence with other central and state government schemes.
