Sayeed praises Modi, says bringing change is 'long race'

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had introduced a transparency model devoid of red-tapism since coming to power at the Centre.

He also said people were waiting for 'Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas', Modi's famous slogan, to translate into reality, but it was going to be a "long race".

"Narendra Modi made Gujarat a model. I have sent my bureaucrats here to see the systems in panchayats. The system will work when it is transparent, corruption-free and if there is no red-tapism in it. System works with single-window system," said Sayeed here, who is on a visit to the state.

"But India is a big country. There are so many people here; diversity is the essence of India. Unity in diversity. People here have elected him for three or four times (as Gujarat CM)...Modi gave the slogan 'Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas' (support to all, development of all).

People are waiting for it. Where has it gone? They do not know this is a long race," he said.
"If you want to set up an industry, it also takes three to four years. Same is the case with a power project," he said, suggesting that bringing about development for all too would take some time.

"There is no red-tape, transparency is everywhere. Such a model has come up before this country," he said, commenting on Modi's performance as the Prime Minister.

On the PDP-BJP coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir led by him, Sayeed said, "I call this...as if North pole and South pole have met each other."

Sayeed was accompanied by the Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister Haseeb A Drabu, Minister of State for Education Priya Sethi and some senior officials.
