PM Modi also cited the use of Article 356 which is meant for establishing the President’s rule in a state. The PM said in his speech that previous governments have made the maximum use of article 356 and then Indian PM Indira Gandhi has used the article 356 for 50 times during her reign. 

PM Modi also raised concerns about states using a lot of taxpayers money in  paying debts. He said that the states should avoid taking excessive and massive amounts of loan for giving relief to common people to seek votes. He urged the State governments that they should think of their coming generations and asked the states to make the best use of money. According to some reports many states are paying one third of their income to settle dues and the states are giving freebies to people by taking massive amounts of loans that become mired in the state’s machinery.
