NEW DELHI: The Indian economy is the fastest in the world to come out of the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic because of policy decisions taken by the Modi government, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Saturday.
Delivering the keynote address at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here, Shah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had envisioned that India would have great opportunities in the post-corona world.
He visualised that economic slump would affect the globe but the policy decisions by the government ensured that the global economic slowdown did not touch the country, Shah said.
“It is the result of policy decisions of the Modi government that the Indian economy is the fastest to come out of Coronavirus impact across the globe,” he said. On the new Coronavirus variant Omicron, he said that the government is keeping a close watch on related developments.
Shah said the fiscal deficit remained in discipline in spite of the fact that the government committed Rs 15 lakh crore to be invested in the next three years to improve health infrastructure, provided free ration to 80 crore people and free vaccination to 130 crore people.
“I am sure that country will find its place in the global order and the dream of Prime Minister Modi to have a five trillion dollar economy will come true,” he said.
