India now 'bright spot' in global economy: Jaitley
New Delhi: Union Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday said the Modi government has provided a 'scam-free' governance during the last four years, and the country has transformed from being a part of the fragile five' to the "bright spot" on global stage. The focus of the government will now be on consolidation of the initiatives taken in the past, Jaitley said in his Facebook post on completion of four years of the NDA government.
In a post titled 'My Reflections on the NDA Government after Completion of Four Years in Power', Jaitley said the preceding ten years of the UPA rule had unquestionably witnessed the most corrupt government since Independence.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi created transparent systems through legislative and institutional changes which have given this country a scam-free governance. Unlike the UPA, the Prime Minister is the natural leader of both his party and the nation," wrote Jaitley, who had undergone a renal transplant earlier this month. He said the country has witnessed a journey from indecisiveness to clarity and decisiveness. "India has transformed from being a part of the "fragile five" to the "bright spot" on the global economic scene. A regime of policy paralysis has been transformed into one of decisions and actions.
"India, which was on the verge of becoming a "basket case" has today been transformed into the fastest growing major economy in the world and is likely to hold that position in the years to come," he said.
