Bookmark

The government will unveil its "plan of action" to boost the economy in the Union Budget to be presented on Feb. 1, union minister Prakash Javadekar said on Wednesday, asserting that economic fundamentals remain very strong.

Responding to a question about the downward revision of India's growth rate by the International Monetary Fund, he said at a Cabinet briefing that the economy is on the path of "revival" and nobody should have a pessimistic view about it.

He also slammed critics of the National Popular Register exercise, saying that it was done during the Congress-led government as well.

The exercise was considered good then but bad now when the Bharatiya Janata Party is doing so, he said.
