“The country cannot run like this and whether it is government or society, they should have trust in each other and law should come in force only when this trust is broken,” he said.
Modi said the trading community should focus on capacity-building and quality to take on the global challenges. He shared the traders’ concerns over “complicated and too many” laws in the country and said he felt at times that a law should be made which stipulate that a new law will come into force only when 10 old laws are scrapped. “There is a web of law. You give us strength so that we (when in power) could repeal one law every week,” he said. He said he was for reforms of laws.
“System does not run on laws but on trust. The law enters when the system is broken. This is the basic principle from which will begin the total overhaul of the governance I am talking about,” he said. (PTI)
