New Delhi, Sep 23: Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday said the aspiration of the southern region of India to become a $1.5 Trillion Economy by 2025 is certainly achievable, and advised the states to focus on reforms, ‘Ease of Doing Business’ and adopt the best practices to attract investments.

Speaking virtually at ‘Mystic South, Global Linkages Summit – Towards a $1.5 Trillion Economy by 2025’ organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry, he said that now this was a right opportunity for all the stakeholders to join hands and ensure sustained economic momentum.

Referring to the opportunities in the region, he said that this region combines manufacturing with services, culture with modern values and education with skills.

Noting that most of the Southern States rank amongst the top in terms of ‘Ease of Doing Business’ rankings, he cited entrepreneurship, skilled workforce, presence of reputed educational institutions, leading IT companies, modern medical infrastructure and excellent connectivity between important cities as some of the major advantages of the region.

Pointing out that a special attention was needed on agriculture to get a sustained growth rate in the economy, the Vice President also called upon the industry to work with the government on implementing various reforms with greater vigour and pave the way for sustained economic growth in the coming decade.

Referring to the slew of measures taken by the Centre to revive the economy, he said, the industry on its part, must rise to the occasion and ensure that the upward growth trajectory continues.

“The need of the hour is to initiate actions that return the economy to a high-growth track and create gainful jobs for millions of workers by 2030,” Naidu said.

Stressing the need for India to leapfrog ahead to achieve the required employment and productivity growth, he commented that global trends such as digitisation and automation, urbanisation, rising incomes, sustainability, health, and safety are assuming a new significance in wake of the pandemic.

“For India, these trends could catalyze growth and become the hallmarks of the post-pandemic economy”, Naidu added.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
