Our common goal, as Bharatiyas, is to reach the $5 trillion economy quickly and then race towards $10 trillion. This will eliminate poverty and create good living standards for all. As we move ahead, we have to address the discrimination between public sector and private sector (entrepreneurs) which is so evident. Government and banks are comfortable giving clearances and funding to the public sector. Government is mai baap, for them everyone is equal, this will provide a boost to the entrepreneurs and will help start ups to move faster and create job opportunities. We have to find a solution whereby the government has no business to be in business and look at everybody with the same pair of eyes. This will take our growth rate to a different level. And government’s energy will be focused on regulation and welfare of the disadvantaged sections of society. Any process for disengaging government from business must commit to zero retrenchment and ensure that no jobs are lost. And if required, some PSUs can be kept for national security reasons. Hamare Prime Minister hamesha bolte hain that government should not be in business and should focus on the welfare of the less privileged section of the society and their upliftment. Let’s act on his vision.
