The Modi government, setting the tone for Lok Sabha elections 2019, painted a picture of New India 2030 using a pallet of infrastructural colors with strokes of cleaner ways to commute.
“(Prime Minister) Narendra Modi has laid the foundation for India’s growth and development for times to come. We have resolved many problems which were coming in the way of realising our full potential as a society and an economy,” Piyush Goyal, interim finance minister, said while presenting the interim budget for 2019-20.
Goyal, who was acting for Arun Jaitley, who is union finance minister for finance and corporate affairs but is in the US due to health conditions, said that India will become a $5 trillion economy by 2022 and $10 trillion economy by 2030.
The interim finance minister laid out a 10 point agenda for the next decade to make India fifth largest growing country in the world.
