Mr. Advani urges businessmen to think big at FICCI AGM
Feb '08
The Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Mr. L. K. Advani, urged the business community to develop a long term perspective for themselves and the nation so that bold and innovative measures can be initiated for GDP good Governance, Development and Protection of the people from internal and external threats.

Addressing the luncheon session of the 80th Annual General Meeting of FICCI, Mr. Advani virtually unveiled the NDA's economic agenda to make the current growth story more equitable and sustainable.

Mr. Advani's message was forthright. He called for vision from India's political, economic and intellectual elite to gain an understanding of what India needs.

In this context, he said, “the tendency, especially in the political and governing class, to think of the near-term in office or of the next election, can do no good to India.”

During the last six months , the UPA government, he said, had become “non-functional and internally paralyzed, and the people were already looking beyond the UPA government. “People are hungry for change in the culture and efficacy of governance.

I know for a fact that small and medium enterprises, the tiny sector, the informal sector where millions of entrepreneurs and workers are engaged, are impatient to see a governmental environment that helps them, rather than harassing them”.

The truth, according to Mr. Advani, was that India's prosperity in the post-reforms period had increasedinequality in society.
