Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his last speech in Parliament before the general election, reiterated his promise to push the Indian economy forward. This time, instead of putting a figure to it, he said the economy would be the world's third largest in his third term.
The BJP has expressed hope that the Narendra Modi government will return to power for the third consecutive term with a massive mandate.
Responding to a vote of thanks to President Draupadi Murmu's address last week, Prime Minister Modi contrasted his development agenda with what he called the opposition's culture of hypocrisy.
„The world is affected by India. The G20 summit is a proof of this. In our third term … India will become the third largest economy in the world, this is Modi's guarantee,” the Prime Minister said.
„When we say we will become the third largest economy, the opposition parties say it will happen by itself, nothing big. I want to tell the youth how it is done, what is the role of the government in this,” PM Modi said. .
“In February 2014, when the interim budget came up, the then finance minister, I was quoted as saying, “I want to look ahead now and outline a vision for the future. And strength is the 11th largest economy. There are great things in store. In the next three decades, India's nominal GDP is projected to take the country to the 3rd largest economy, behind the US and China.” In 2014, they said India would become the 3rd largest economy by 2044. That's their vision,” PM Modi.
Prime Minister Modi said his government's promise to take India to third place for a third term „should make the opposition happy” „as they were happy at 11th place”.
