India needs a realistic PM, not an economist: Rajnath Singh
The country needed a ‘realistic’ Prime Minister to pull it out from the deep economic crisis it is passing through and not an economist like Manmohan Singh, BJP president Rajnath Singh said on Monday. Singh, an MP, said, ‘The Prime Minister is on the silent mode and soch raha hai (thinking what to do). The Prime Minister is a big economist. Vajpayee was not an economist but a realist. You compare the economy during the NDA and UPA regimes.’ ‘After the UPA came to power in 2004, the rupee went to the ventilator, the dollar is climbing the escalator and the domestic investors are on the runway ready to invest overseas and the educated youth is on the runway,’ Singh said at an interactive session organised by ICC and MCC Chamber here.
