Foreign firms not required to prop up economy: Anna to Manmohan
According to latest news, social activist Anna Hazare on Sunday criticized the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for inviting international firms in India to prop up the economy.
Anna Hazare reminded father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi’s plan to first improving the rural economy.
Anna Hazare was sharing his views at the ThinkFest conclave, he said, “Prime minister says we cannot improve the economy without inviting foreign companies, which is absolutely wrong.”
Further, Anna Hazare said, it is not fair to invite foreign firms in India and provide them our land as well as minerals, he said, “Mahatma Gandhi had said that if we want to improve the economy of the country, we need to work on improving the economy of the villages.”
Anna highly emphasized that he has proved that working in villages could help to generate economy, he said, “I have worked in several villages without any foreign funding. In the villages where people were living with empty stomachs, we have brought about a change and now they are exporting vegetables.”
Anna Hazare said, “Not just corruption, but we have to tackle the issues like human rights and environment.”
When asked media that is he associated the BJP or RSS. Anna said, “This is not new. The tree which bear fruits attracts maximum stones.”
He added, “I will walk on my path of truth. Let anyone criticise me.”
