Modi said that when we talk about Digital India, some people think that it is just a government scheme. But Digital India is not just a name, it is a big vision for the development of the country. He said that the goal of this vision is to take that technology to the common people, which works for the people, works with the people. He said that from zero mobile phone exports in 2014 till now, when we export phones worth thousands of crores… these efforts have affected the cost of the device. Now we have started getting more features in less price. Modi claimed that we focused on 4 pillars. 1 – cost of the device, 2 – digital connectivity, 3 – cost of data, 4 – idea of digital first.
The Prime Minister said that as the government started a door-to-door campaign to provide electricity, like it worked on the mission of providing clean water to everyone through the Har Ghar Jal Abhiyan, like gas in the homes of the poorest of the poor through the Ujjwala scheme. The cylinder was delivered, similarly our government is working on the goal of Internet for all. He said that there was a time when a handful of elite class people doubted the ability of poor people. He suspected that poor people would not even understand the meaning of digital. But I have always had faith in the understanding of the common man of the country, in his conscience, in his inquisitive mind.
