Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said governors occupy a unique high position and can work as catalytic agents in the states.
Speaking in the concluding session of the Conference, Prime Minister said Governors occupy a unique high position and can therefore work as catalytic agents in the States, speeding up and improving processes without themselves becoming a part of it.
He also stressed on the importance of cooperative federalism, which he said must be implemented in letter and spirit. He said the Centre and States must work together as “Team India.”
He added that the spirit of cooperative federalism must also extend to cooperative, competitive federalism, with healthy competition for development among states.
The Prime Minister also noted that India is the only major economy across the world, which is moving ahead strongly despite the global economic crisis.
The Prime Minister urged all Governors to think about some form of legacy which they would leave behind at the end of their terms, as their contribution to the States.
23 Governors and 2 Lieutenant Governors participated in the two-day Conference held in New Delhi.
Earlier, addressing the Conference, President Pranab Mukherjee had called on all the incumbents of constitutional positions, to maintain the sanctity of Constitution.
