Sense of social responsibility alone can instill discipline in society, authoritarianism can distort social values: Narendra Modi

Ahmedabad, Wednesday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today unveiled senior IAS officer of Gujarat cadre Dr. Rajivkumar Gupta’s book, ‘Public Discipline – From Thought to Action’, written in English as well as in Hindi, at a function here this evening.

Speaking on the occasion, CM Narendra Modi said that a sense of social responsibility alone can instill discipline among the public, authoritarianism can distort social values and take the society away from duty. Discipline should not be a felt as a burden. It should not shackle the society by strict rules, but bind the people within limits of realization

He said that observing discipline in a society should be a matter of habit. He said the concept of public and personal hygiene and cleanliness in the western culture is quite different. The concept of our respect for nation, society, mother-father, guru is linked to our duty. Religious functions establish faith and prepare mental makeup in religiousness. Discipline comes with a sense of responsibility.

When India became free, he said, it was our duty to serve and educate the society. But people started talking more about their rights, resulting into negative attitude like ‘what is mine’ and ‘why should I’. This led to distortion and indiscipline. It is time we have to come out of the degeneration. Family is the biggest factor to unite the society.

The Chief Minister complimented the author, Dr. Gupta, and the publisher Navbharat Sahitya Mandir. Dr. Gupta spoke about the salient features in his book.

The function was attended by Ministers, IAS and IPS officers, literary glitterati and prominent citizens.
