It was on May 16, 2014 that the nation saw a new dawn with Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) winning the Lok Sabha elections with a landslide margin. On 26th May 2015, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government will complete one-year in office. Akin to BJP storming to power in 2014 LS polls, the one-year in office has been practically a story of ‘success’, marked with achievements and distinctions. In what buttresses this belief, a recent survey of the industry body ASSOCHAM gave Modi government 7 out of 10 marks while others few also see 1 year of governance in positive light.
