New Delhi: In the last 10 years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has laid the foundation for good governance and development, and India has emerged from the fragile five economies of the world to now become a top five economy, Union Minister Anurag Thakur said.
"Six hundred million people are getting facility of Ayushman Bharat Scheme, 800 million people are getting free food grain for five years and across the world we are paying the highest MSP (minimum support price) for sugarcane. In the last 10 years we have worked on laying the foundation of good governance and development. In the next 24 years we will become Viksit Bharat. I believe that we will achieve the goal of Viksit Bharat much before 2047," Thakur said.
The union minister was speaking at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) national conclave on Viksit Bharat 2047 that got underway here in the national capital today.
"People are talking about 'Viksit Bharat' in 2047. If you look back at 2014, we were among the fragile five economies of the world. There were several corruption cases. There were many other issues faced by people where the delivery of government schemes was a big challenge. From a lost decade, to 'techade', how this journey has been from the time of UPA to the time of UPI, I think that things have changed. Indian Passport has got more weightage in world Now under leadership of PM Modi," Anurag Thakur said.
