India needs to get away from inward looking socialism, Hardeep Singh Puri
“We sat in our drawing rooms in Delhi for years and drew lofty 5 year plans wanting to ‘hatao gareebi’, through a heavy cocktail of slogans, subsidies and socialism. The outcome of poverty mongering is poverty,” said Urban Development minister, Hardeep Singh Puri.
Talking about recreating India, the minister pressed upon combating issues impacting the social sector, including housing for all.
“By the time we celebrate Mahatma Gandhi 150th birth anniversary in 2019, India will be open defecation free”, said Puri.
