Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that India requires not just high-speed trains but wants high-speed growth as well.

“India is a land of possibilities with excellent human resources and a technological base,” PM Modi said while addressing the India-Japan business leaders forum with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Delhi.

Modi on Saturday said the ‘Make in India’ initiative has become a movement in Japan and the island nation has created a fund of about $12 billion for it.

“Today, there is a ‘Make In India’ movement in Japan. I have been told that $11-12 billion fund has been earmarked for it. This clearly indicates how both the countries can move forward,” he said while addressing the India-Japan Business Leaders Forum in New Delhi.

‘Make in India’ is proceeding in mission mode, not just in India, but also in Japan, he added. Modi also said that for the first time Japan will import cars from India.

“Maruti (Suzuki) will manufacture here… Japanese company will manufacture here and export it to Japan,” he said, adding that both India and Japan should move ahead together, not just in the sphere of high-speed trains, but also for “high-speed growth.”

Recalling his last visit to the country, Modi said Japan committed an investment of $35 billion. “The figure had surprised many at that time, but today, within a short time-span, unimaginable progress had been made, and the contours of this investment were beginning to get visible on the ground,” he said.

Highlighting the improvement in economic indicators in both India and Japan, he said these were extremely encouraging, especially in the light of the global economic slowdown. “It is clear that India is a land of possibilities,” he added.

Praising Modi’s reforms programme, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, “Prime Minister Modi’s speed of implementing policies and reforms is like Shinkansen (bullet train) and his reform agenda is as safe as Shinkansen.”

Abe also said that India has become a very attractive investment destination for Japan.

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav Sad

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
