Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India still has hopes to become the $5 trillion economy by 2024 amid all the adversities posed by the Covid-19 outbreak but for that, the country has to run fast and work harder.
Furthermore, he said that the government has a record of hitting the targets well before the assigned time and this target will also be achieved.
In an interview to a Media House Prime Minister said that some people who are pessimistic talk about “despair and despondency”. “However, if you discuss with optimistic people, you will hear ideasand suggestions on how to improve. Today, our country is optimistic of the future, it is optimistic of reaching the $5 trillion target,” said Modi during an interview with The Economic Times.
He further said that the entire country should be feeling proud and respect the hard work done by the corona warriors who are working 18-20 hours a week. n
He also said that due to the challenges created by the pandemic, several plans were shattered but if the country works hard and runs faster next year, it can still reach the losses in the current year.
“India is the third largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity. We want India to become the third largest in terms of current US dollar prices as well. The $5 trillion target will help us achieve that,” said Modi said during the interview.
