Manmohan Singh New Delhi, Feb 28 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Monday said Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has “done a good job” by presenting a growth-oriented and inclusive budget.

“The finance minister deserves congratulations for maintaining a high growth rate despite the adverse international economic climate,” Manmohan Singh said in an interview to the national broadcaster Doordarshan.

He did not agree to the observation that there was not much for the corporate sector in the budget.

Asked why there was no amnesty scheme to unearth black money, the prime minister said such schemes had not succeeded in the past.

The issue has to be dealt with in a “permanent and holistic manner”, Manmohan Singh added.
