India is poised for double-digit growth on the back of one year of “corruption-free governance”, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Friday.
He also said the environment of pessimism has been replaced by one of enthusiasm.
He was addressing the first of about two dozen press conferences by senior Ministers to mark one year of the NDA government.
Nearly an year ago, the nation witnessed a change for the better a transformation in every sense.
BJP’s landslide victory in the 2014 elections marked a new beginning.
People voted the party to power that promised ‘ achhe din’ or good days in the times to come – with more jobs, better infrastructure; rather a complete social and economical overhaul.
One year since, it’s time to take a look at what has been achieved and who else to better present it that the Finance Minister Arun jaitley himself.
Not only did he presented the report card to mark the first year of the Narendra Modi-led government.
The Finance Minister laid down the agenda for the next one year.
He said, the govt has built a sense of confidence in the people and is constantly working towards maintaining transparent and effective governance.
The Finance Minister said the biggest achievement of the government has been that it has eliminated political and governmental corruption.
Jaitley further added that since the NDA government came to power the misuse of the Central Bureau of Intelligence has stopped.
Speaking about subsidies, Jaitley said that the government is working towards providing benefits to the farmers and minimising leakages.
Jaitley said his government’s initiatives in sectors such as power, coal and mining shows its intent to run a transparent model for reforms.
Rating the government’s one-year performance as more than satisfactory, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley asserted that the government has given a new direction to the country on which it will continue to work in the days to come.
