NEW DELHI: “Success and setbacks are part of the game and if we are in politics, we should take setbacks in our stride. Small fluctuations should not deter us from continuing the good work we have done in the last 10 years,” PM Narendra Modi said at the last meeting of the Union cabinet, which recommended dissolution of the 17th Lok Sabha on Wednesday.
The dip in numbers for the party and alliance, development work of the Modi govt since 2014 and India’s “improved” position in the global order were among the subjects discussed. The PM, who chaired the meeting at his residence, urged colleagues to gear up for the next five years to carry on from where the second BJP-led NDA govt had left off.
Thereafter, the Union cabinet recommended the dissolution of Lok Sabha. Modi called on President Murmu at Rashtrapati Bhavan and tendered his resignation along with that of the council of ministers. According to Rashtrapati Bhavan, the President accepted the resignation and requested the PM and ministers to continue in office till the new govt was formed.
At the council of ministers meeting, Modi said the govt had lived up to the people’s expectation and “all of you have worked well and worked very hard”.
The ministers lauded Modi’s leadership. Union ministers Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Arjun Munda, Dharmendra Pradhan and Virendra Kumar Khatik expressed appreciation for the PM’s guidance and vision.
Later, the President hosted a dinner for Modi and the outgoing council of ministers at Rashtrapati Bhavan. The event was attended by Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar and LS Speaker Om Birla.
