In his address the Union Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley termed the academic institutes like IIM, IIT and others as the engines of growth and prosperity in the country. He said that Punjab was fortunate that during the two years span of Modi government holy city was given IIM and Ropar was allotted IIT, which would give major boost to the ongoing development of the state. Mr. Jaitley said that such institutes provide much needed eco-system for the economic development of any region.
Expressing concern over the dwindling farm income and its share in national GDP, the Union Minister said that agriculture today was difficult preposition as though 55% of population was dependent on agriculture but its share in GDP was merely 15%. Citing the examples of Asian giants like Taiwan, Vietnam and others, he said that the need of hour was to impart quality education and increase the share of industry in the national economy along with boosting agriculture. “This will help in ensuring a balanced and holistic economic growth of the country” added Mr. Jaitley.
Lauding the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister for ensuring unprecedented development in the state, the Union Minister said that Punjab was changing its glorious face with every passing day. He said that the SAD-BJP alliance government has been constantly giving facelift to state by initiating one project or another. “Every time during my visit to the state I see a new Punjab emerging from dedication and hard work of Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister” added Mr. Jaitley.
Lauding the setting up meritorious schools in the state, the Union Minister said that these schools were proving to be a boon for imparting quality education to the poor students in the state.
