Must pull Indian economy out of 'gloom': Narendra Modi
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday said there was an atmosphere of gloom in the Indian economy, and there was need to pull the country out of it.
"We need to come out of the current gloom and bridge the trust deficit in India. An atmosphere of confidence and trust is very important in India now," Modi said, addressing business leaders in Gandhinagar.
"Running away from decision-making will not help run a country," he said, taking an indirect jibe at the Congress-led coalition at the centre, which the BJP has accused of "policy paralysis".
The Gujarat chief minister said it was important to increase purchasing power to ensure growth.
