The humongous Pro Narendra Modi’s electoral mandate gave clear indications for a strong regime of leadership. Indian MSMEs have started consolidating their hopes and expectations until this big news came up to them. Heavy-weight Cabinet Minister and NDA Government’s flagship firebrand – Nitin Gadkari has taken charge to lead the Ministry of MSME, and leverage MSME sector.
Being a seasoned entrepreneur himself, Mr Gadkari understands not just the basics of business but also understands the exclusivities of business challenges and after showcasing his leadership skills in the previous four years of his cabinet-level leadership, we know that Nitin Gadkari is also a synonym of problem solver and pure play doer.
The fact of the matter remains that MSMEs are experiencing tough times for the last few years due to a series of disruptions from demonetisation to implementation of GST to snowball effects of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. The sector seems sanguine now that some of their demands may get attention they deserve.
On such an outset, Nitin Gadkari’s appointment brings a very strong breeze of fresh hopes.
As a minister of state, the appointment of Pratap Chandra Sarangi as Minister of State is also getting observed as a hugely important development. Mr. Gadkari, on one hand, has a reputation of ‘non-nonsense go-getter’, Mr Sarangi represents a strong face of deglamorization of political leadership and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of showcasing the empowerment of simple yet highly committed political leader.
Coming from a very humble background, Mr Sarangi is expected to disrupt the entire style of Indian political leadership.
With these developments, SMEStreet is looking forward for a positive and action-packed roadmap which ultimately empowers every small entrepreneur, which understand the pain points of every section of small business community and this policymaker duo will ensure that the policies getting framed and designed for te entrepreneur should reach to their level and bring the much-needed reforms.
There is no doubt that MSMEs in India want reforms.
