Judge my government by its performance, says PMMay 22nd, 2011 - 11:39 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Sunday that his government’s record was an open book and it should be judged by its performance.
“Our record is an open book. I invite every citizen, every political activist and every member of the media to read this report and judge us by our performance,” the prime minister said, speaking at the second anniversary function of the United Progressive Alliance-II government.
He said India stands at the cusp of new opportunities and new challenges.
“These are difficult times, with rising energy prices, with increasing demand for food, with new challenges to human security. But these are also times of change, with the engine of global growth shifting eastwards to Asia. Asia is on the march, and so is India,” he said.
Presenting the “Report to The People”, he said his government felt humbled by the faith reposed by the people in it.
“The challenge before us is to repay the people of India in kind - with policies and programmes that offer them better lives, a better future, a secure neighbourhood, a peaceful world.”
Terming his seven years as prime minister as a “daunting journey”, the prime minister said the love, affection and support of the people of the country had given “us the strength, the energy and the determination to take our country forward”.
“On behalf of the UPA government, I would like to once again thank the people of India for the confidence they have reposed in us,” he said.
