Major challenges for the Modi government 2.0

challenges before the Modi 2.0 government


  • In 2019’s Lok Sabha elections, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won 353 seats and formed the government again. So, what are the biggest challenges before the Modi 2.0 government?

Major challenges for the new Modi government:-

  • The biggest challenge for the new government is to gain the trust of minorities. Mob lynchings, hate speeches and several other incidents caused insecurity in minorities. Modi government 2.0 needs to take action on those who are spreading hate and need to gain the trust of everyone.
  • Unemployment is on the rise. In the financial year 2018-19, the unemployment rate is 6.1%. The second biggest challenge for the new Modi government is to create job opportunities at a large scale.
  • Agrarian crisis is one of the important challenges for the new government. In 2018’s union budget, the government promised to double the farmers’ income by 2022. But it seems impossible to achieve considering the agricultural crisis in India. In the interim budget 2019, the government announced the income support program, through which government is giving Rs.6000 per annum to the farmers who own less than 2 hectares of land. But it is not at all sufficient to lift the agricultural sector out of the crisis. Structural reforms are needed to solve the agricultural crisis in India.
  • India needs to improve its relationship with its neighbours.
  • Crimes on women are on rising in India. But the laws are not being effectively implemented to tackle the issue. The new government needs to take serious steps to prevent crimes on women.
  • In 2014’s elections manifesto, BJP promised to pass ‘women’s reservation bill‘ (108th constitutional amendment bill), but it couldn’t keep the promise. The new Modi government needs to take a step on the bill to keep its word.
  • According to the State of India’s Environment (SoE) report by The ‘Center for Science and Environment’, air pollution is killing one lakh children aged under 5 every year. Increasing air pollution levels is a serious concern.
  • As India is facing water scarcity, providing access to clean water for everyone is yet another challenge for the new Modi government.

The fact that the Modi government is re-elected reveals that many people have trust in it. But still, the government has a lot of challenges too. Let’s hope that the Modi government 2.0 will be successful in tackling all these challenges.

  1. Among the several challenges in front of the current government I find food security and women safety as the need of the hour. The recent reports released on global hunger index ,has put India in a bad light ,as we ranked 102 out of 117 countries. More than 20% of the Indian population is poverty stricken. lack of food security is taking lives and people are victimized of malnutrition ,so its high time for the gov to not just introduce schemes for the poor ,but also assuring the timely ground implementation ,and lift the country out of starvation.
    Women safety is another big challenge ahead the newly elected gov. the crime rates are soring in India, majorly against women and for the country to prosper ,it’s of vital importance that the country men and women feel safe. I would again reiterate that there is no lack of laws and schemes in India, what lacks largely is the implementation, without it no bold step ,no bold schemes are going to work and thus no effective results can be seen.

    1. I generally and thoroughly read your words , and feel quite good after reading your perspections, wish a good luck for your future, keep doing it .At last, I have just one thing to share with you, that ” THINKING ,MAKES THE ULTIMATE DIFFERENCE”. bye , wish we met again.

  2. Another can be the improvement of education system in india,this may not only include the improvement of schools and other educational institutions of our country but to also increase the rate of literate population. Giving emphasis on youth should be one major goal because aprrox. 35 percent of India’s population comprises of the youth and if utilised with care and perfection this force may provide great success to India……

  3. The main challenge the government is facing is the rising of unemployment in India at a higher rate

  4. I believe that Modi 2.0 is going to face challenges in maintaining oil prices, increasing the number of jobs, bringing sufficient investment in the industrial sector, farmer issues and providing safe drinking water to people.
