Gadkari counters party line on reforms

Gadkari counters party line on reforms
Running counter to the stance on economic reforms by the Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] during its three day national executive and national council held recently, BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday gave a push for complete liberalisation in the country.
Gadkari, while speaking at an event organised by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha [BJYM] study circle, said that the government should not be interfering on how business is run in the country.

'As far as the government is concerned it should not run business in the country, its role should only be to make policies,' said Gadkari.

Specifying that he is not talking about the present government, but about the economic governance in the country, the BJP president said the capital investment made by the government in any sector has resulted in losses. 'Sarkar ke pair jahan bhi pade, wahan banta dhaar ho jaata hai [What ever the government gets involved in it leads to a downfall],' said the BJP president. Gadkari added any enterprise that is run by the government be it the gold mines, railways, steel or textile has led to huge losses. Advocating that competition in any sector helps the consumer of the country, Gadkari said that earlier STD call rates would be very expensive and one had to think before making a call but with private players entering the market STD call rates have drastically come down over the years. 'If the number of companies in any sector increase go up, it is beneficial to the consumer,' said Gadkari.
