"Prime Minister Narendra Modi has risen above partisan politics and taken steps for the welfare of the poor and overall progress of the country. The biggest example of this is the NDA govt's decision to accept the recommendations of the 14th Financial Commission," Shah said in a statement.
He added that Modi has tried to build Team India by taking everyone along. He also cited the example of setting up of Niti Aayog where the states and the Centre would work together for policy making and country's progress.
He also cited the example of coal block auction which has brought in Rs 1.25 lakh crore, much of which will go to poor states like West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha and Chattisgarh, which have these coal blocks.
By taking such steps, BJP feels that the NDA regime is trying to take everyone along in the development process and is taking steps to fulfill the dream of One India Great India, the statement said.
