Amid farm fire, PM Modi says reforms needed for vikas

AGRA: PM Modi on Monday said reforms are needed for development and some laws from the past century have become a burden now. He said this while inaugurating the construction of Agra metro rail project through video conference.
“Reforms are very much needed for a new order and to give new facilities. We cannot build the next century with the laws of the previous century,” he said.
“Reforms should be a continuous process,” said the PM, adding that his government is carrying out ‘holistic reforms’. “Earlier, reforms used to happen in a piecemeal manner, or keeping in mind some sectors and departments,” the PM said.
Modi’s statements came amid the row over farm laws meant to bring major changes in the agri-marketing sector. The PM said one of the major problems the country’s infrastructure sector faced earlier was that when new projects were announced, not much attention was given on how these would be funded. He added that his government now ensures availability of funds at the start of a new project itself. The PM said reforms carried out in the recent past have infused self-confidence in the country. “This confidence has been seen in every election in the recent past,” he said.
The prime minister said that efforts are on to attract investments from all over the world to improve the country’s infrastructure.
