Indian talent in IT sector will play important role in bringing jobs to India: Anurag Thakur

Union Minister Anurag Thakur said the Centre has set a target to make India ‘Viksit Bharat’ by 2047 and slammed the previous UPA government over corruption and scams.

Addressing IT professionals here on Thursday, he said, “… IT stands for ‘India Tomorrow’ and what is the target for India tomorrow? The target is to develop India into Viksit Bharat by 2047.”

Taking a dig at the Congress, the Union Minister said, “Can you imagine 10 years back our countrymen were finding it even difficult to think about freeing themselves from the clutches of corrupt Congress party and its alliance partners where one after another scam took place.”

Referring to the various scams during the UPA regime, he said because we have a short memory, sometimes we forget especially those aged between 18 and 22, they were only eight and 10 years old then. “They are not aware of 2G scam or CWG scam… They didn’t know about AgustaWestland, Coal scam and all that…”

“It is our duty to remind them that between 2009 to 2014, there were so many scams in this country that by 2014 it looked like the growth (of the country) was stagnant, inflation was high and policy paralysis was hitting the country hard and we were looking at an option,” he said.
