New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an interview to the Wall Street Journal responded to the criticism that he failed to pursue "big bang reforms" to revamp the country's economy. He said he has laid a roadmap for the progressive growth and it is the responsibility of the states to take it forward.
On completing two years in power, Modi said that he has brought a lot of investments and made efforts to curb corruption and improve the rural infrastructure.
"I have actually undertaken the maximum reforms," PM Modi said in the interview on Wednesday at his official home in Delhi, but added: "I have an enormous task ahead for myself."
The Prime Minister said that India traditionally has been a nonaligned country reluctant to play a prominent role in global affairs. But over the past decade, it has formed ever-stronger links with the U.S. 
“Today, unlike before, India is not standing in a corner,” Modi said.
In a visit to Washington next month, Modi will meet President Barack Obama and address a joint session of the US Congress.

If reforms only mean to undo the wrongs done by us in the past, we have failed and will keep on failing with the way we are moving. What does " it is the responsibility of the states to carry them forward means ". We shall have to ensure that they carry it forward willingly and honestly for which we ourselves will have to be willing and honest.
