Addressing civil servants at an event here, Prime Minister Modi said, "Lives of people will change when we keep them at the centre of all decisions. If we keep the common man at the centre while framing the country's laws, rules and regulations, then there will be a change in the lives of people."
The Prime Minister also added: "It is also time to think how successful we have been in fulfilling the resolutions that we took in the past and how much change we have brought in the lives of common man."
He maintained that people's participation is a basis of India's success.
