New Delhi : Seeking to erase the image of policy paralysis, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday spoke of "difficult decisions" and "determined measures" to boost investment. UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on the other hand observed that the mandate in the next polls will depend on the work done and not promises.
A touch of introspection on the part of two leaders was evident at a celebration to mark the third anniversary of UPA-II at the Prime Minister's residence where the highlight was the presence of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav on the podium along with senior ministers and UPA constituent leaders. (Shame on the politicians who are 'celebrating' the anniversary of UPA-II, when people are reeling under huge price rise and they are not able to get at least 2 square meals a day. Only 2 days before, more than 20 Indians lost their lives in train accident; but still rulers are 'celebrating' the anniversary. Now establishment of a Hindu Nation has become need of the hour !)
Releasing 'The Report to the People' along with Gandhi, Singh said, "Difficult decisions have to be taken on both spending and revenue mobilisation. Both the Centre and states have to be fiscally responsible. We also have to remove implementation bottlenecks that are preventing large projects from getting off the ground."
He said, "Determined measures are needed to boost the climate for industrial investment, both domestic and foreign".
Despite "real achievements" of the last eight years, "there are uncertainties and a large unfinished agenda before us", he said.
To those who have been targeting his government for the past several months, the PM said, “I invite a constructive criticism of our performance.” (But what would be the result of the same ? When PM will act against corruption rampaging in UPA-II regime ?)
On the issue of corruption which has been plaguing the Congress-led-government at the Centre he accepted, “We know there is public anger on the issue of corruption.” "We are trying to ensure exemplary punishment to the guilty while ensuring that public servants feel secure in taking bonafide decisions in national interest," the Prime Minister said. ( O Indians, already UPA Govt. has fooled us by presenting 'BLANK' White Paper on 'Black Money'. Now only a Hindu Nation having righteous and patriotic rulers can save this country !)
Outlining the achievements of the UPA-II’s third anniversary, the Prime Minister said that the “Indian economy grew at about seven percent in 2011-12 which is the highest in the world,” despite adverse international economic scenario. He also added that there were noted successes in agricultural sector. “Rural wages have increased and India has been declared polio free by international agencies and WHO.” (But prices of daily needs of people have increased manifold as compared to rise in their wages. Govt. has failed to check the rising prices !)
"Sustained high rates of growth during the UPA government's tenure have enabled us to pursue our agenda of inclusive and equitable growth," he said.
Manmohan Singh asked the state government to come together to fight the menace of corruption and accepted that “Naxalism is a big problem.” (Everyone know about this problem. It would be better if Govt. will take any firm action against Naxalism instead of wasting time on giving statements about 'problem of Naxalism' !)
Taking on the critics of his government, the PM said, “Some people have questioned the capabilities of India’s growth. We will prove our sceptics wrong.” (Congress has already proved 'capability of India's growth as corrupt nation' as so many gigantic scams have unearthed in last 3 years !)
