World looking at India with hope: Naidu

JAIPUR: India is moving on the path of growth and reforms and the entire world is looking at the country with a hope, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today said.

            Speaking at the convocation ceremony of Malviya National Institute of Technology here, he said decisions like rolling out of GST and demonetisation were revolutionary steps and widely appreciated.

            They might have led to temporary pains but they are for longterm gain, he said.

            He encouraged the students and parents to respect and speak their mother tongue at home and also motivated them to work for the motherland.

            “India is on the path of growth. India never attacked any country and it is the most tolerate country in the world,” he said.

            Before the British and Mughal eras, he said India accounted for 26 per cent of the world’s GDP and had rich knowledge and wisdom. “Therefore India was the leader of the world. The world is again looking at India with a hope,” he said. (AGENCIES)
