On a day Indian economy clocked GDP growth rate at 8.2 per cent – highest in recent past – BJP chief Amit Shah on Friday complimented the government for single minded approach and putting country’s economy “back on track”.
“India’s rising economic fortunes mean better prospects for the common man, who will now have more means and opportunities to realise his or her dreams,” Mr Shah said in a series of tweets.
He said: “New India, under PM Modi’s leadership, is now empowered more than ever. My compliments to the PM for this stupendous performance”.
“Indian economy was in shambles when PM Modi took office but an unfazed NDA, the entire cabinet, single mindedly focussed on putting India back on track,” Mr Shah wrote.
He also complimented Prime Minister Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for what he said, undertaking the “arduous task of putting fundamentals” in place amidst heightened expectations.
“India’s rapidly growing GDP is a reflection on the transformative changes being ushered in by
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. Indian economy is witnessing unprecedented growth in every sector, from manufacturing to agriculture,” he said.
The quantum leap in GDP figures coming about eight months before the general elections is seen as a major booster for the government which has consistently come under attack for alleged economic mismanagement.
The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rose to 8.2 per cent in the first quarter of the current financial year driven by the sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing and construction sector, the Central Statistics Office (CSO) said on Friday.
