BENGALURU: Union minister Piyush Goyal has said that a good and strong single-party government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will help transform and speed up the development process in Karnataka.
While addressing the gathering at the Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) in Bengaluru on Friday evening, he said, “A good and strong single-party government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi will help transform and speed up the development process in Karnataka. Let us work together to make India a global power”.
He also took to Twitter and said, “Today, India is the most sought-after country under PM Narendra Modi’s leadership. At The Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce & Industry, (I) reiterated how the double-engine Govt will ensure growth & development in the state.”
Piyush Goyal said that advancements in technology are helping India make a name among global economies. “Bengaluru created the UPI which today has become the envy of the world. We are creating milestone records with our UPI transactions almost every month. The ONDC is aimed at democratising e-commerce, so small businesses get the chance to offer their goods and services. “The world today looks up to India as the bright spot that will drive global growth and economies around the globe, given the huge delta of opportunities we have in India”, he added.
Goyal also said that under the governance of Prime Minister Modi, a strong macroeconomic foundation has been set on which the country can grow for decades in the future. “What did the Modi government do in the last nine years? We created a strong macroeconomic foundation on which the country can grow for decades in the future. Countries that had the least inflation are today grappling with double-digit inflation whereas India, which earlier had double-digit inflation, has seen the lowest inflation in nine years of the Modi government”, he said.
“Despite the ongoing global crisis, the RBI Governer complimented the collective efforts of the Modi government and the regulators have decided to maintain policy rates and not increase them”, he added.
He further mentioned that due to the current government policies, global investors are attracted towards India. “PM Narendra Modi, while strengthening India’s economy, has looked at a holistic and inclusive vision. In the last nine years, we have seen record FDI, low inflation and export growth. Investors are coming to India for R&D, and manufacturing, and to enjoy the benefits of India’s talent pool. Certainly, India is the most sought-after country in PM Narendra Modi’s leadership”, he said.
Piyush Goyal further stated that Union Government took every necessary step for the nation during the pandemic. “As we strengthened our economy we also took care of 140 crore Indians. There was a time when India grappled with food, clothing and shelter issues. Education and healthcare were a matter of privilege”.
“PM Narendra Modi who himself worked as a karyakarta, risen through the ranks, knew the needs of Indians. Therefore, his focus was to ensure holistic growth. He ensured no family sleeps hungry in the country. There have been no reported starvation deaths in the remotest corners of India during the pandemic”, he added.
He also said that Modi Government worked on strengthening the infrastructure of the basic amenities in the country. “A basic amenity like a toilet was not available in the country. The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan was instrumental in ensuring that no sister has to live a life of indignity in our country. PM Modi’s efforts to ensure electricity reaches every village, women get cooking gas cylinders, people have shelter and low-cost healthcare, and free education for young children, we have now a nation of aspirational young boys and girls”, he said.
The Union Minister mentioned that today, the world looks towards India after the efforts the Modi government took in the vaccination programme. “We indigenously created vaccines, which saved our people and also people from many other countries. As we have PM Narendra Modi as our leader, who believes in ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, the world looks up to India today”. (ANI)
