We’re not a ‘PM presides and Madam decides’ Govt., says Venkaiah about NDA

Bengaluru : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said the NDA Government is not the type of government where a “PM presides and Madam decides”.

“That was the case during the former prime minister’s regime, because you could not act. There used to be a famous quotation: “PM presides, Madam decides”. That’s not the case with this government,” said M. Venkaiah Naidu, Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation.

“This government is working as a team. The entire world is saying that India is a bright spot, because of the initiatives taken by the government,” he added.

With Manmohan Singh saying that there is a lack of confidence within the business community, Naidu said, “It will take some time to repair the damage that was done by the Manmohan Singh’s regime for 10 years, and we are repairing it.”

“What we have inherited? We have inherited fiscal deficit, revenue deficit, trade deficit among others. Things have improved now: World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Asian Development bank are saying that India is the hot spot for investments,” he added.

“With all this our friends in the Congress Party, particularly the former prime minister, is not able to see the reality and makes negative comments only to please the boss, who has made him the prime minister. And thus, we can only feel sorry for what he is saying, because, in the entire country there is new enthusiasm, new awakening, things are happening, world has recognised India and respecting India also, on the economic front changes are coming,” he added.
