Manmohan Singh New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday said the new government’s focus will be on restoring the economy and ensure inclusive growth.
“Our first priority is to restore the economy, especially keeping the global recession (in mind),” the prime minister told reporters after assuming office for a second term after his Congress party’s sweeping win in the general election.

“Industrial production is down. Certain sectors need revival, though the Indian economy is not so badly affected. Corrected measures have to be taken. Growth will be our main focus. And when I mean growth, I mean inclusive growth that will carry everyone along, including the underprivileged in the country,” he said.
