Business Standard - - ECONOMY & FINANCE -

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Thurs­day said Gov­er­nors can be­come cat­alytic agents for change in so­ci­ety, while up­hold­ing the sanc­tity of the Con­sti­tu­tion. Ad­dress­ing a con­fer­ence of Gov­er­nors at Rash­tra­p­ati Bha­van in the Cap­i­tal, he men­tioned the tar­get of ‘New In­dia’ by 2022 and em­pha­sised that this can be achieved only by mak­ing it a peo­ple’s move­ment, a Prime Min­is­ter’s Of­fice state­ment said. He also said that the Gov­er­nors can “mo­ti­vate” banks to give loans un­der the Mu­dra scheme to trib­als, Dal­its and women, es­pe­cially in the pe­riod between Con­sti­tu­tion Day on Novem­ber 26 and Ambed­kar Ma­ha­parinir­vana Di­was on De­cem­ber 6. He en­cour­aged them to in­ter­act at length with stu­dents and teach­ers in this re­gard, the state­ment said.
