    Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday presented the report card of UPA-II as the government completed its third year in office. At the function, the Prime Minister conceded that the government needs to do better, adding that he welcomes a constructive debate. Stating the



    achievement of the government in the last three years, the Prime Minister asserted that poverty had declined at twice the rate than that before the tenure of the UPA government.
    Speaking on the current economic turmoil across the world, the PM said, "despite an adverse economic environment, India continued to be the second fastest growing economy at the rate of 7%."

    On corruption, Singh said, "the legislation is before Parliament to establish a Lokpal, ensure time-bound delivery of goods and services and judicial accountability."

    He also urged all political parties to rise above partisan considerations so that India can face the uncertain global environment with greater confidence and rise united to the challenges the nation faces.


    Following is the full text of the PM's speech:


    It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this function to mark the completion of the third year of the second UPA government.

    I believe that the annual Report to the People that we are releasing today presents an objective statement of what we have achieved in office over the past year. I welcome an informed and constructive debate on our performance.

    We will be the first to say we need to do better. But let no one doubt that we have achieved much.

    Despite an adverse international environment, the economy grew by about 7 percent in 2011-12, which is amongst the highest in the world. Sustained high rates of growth during the UPA government’s tenure have enabled us to pursue our agenda of inclusive and equitable growth.

    I will highlight some of the achievements of our policies that aim to bring succour to the aam aadmi.

    • Poverty has declined at twice the rate that it did before the UPA Government's tenure.

    • There have been notable successes in agriculture. The agricultural growth rate has risen to 3.3% per annum in the 11th Five Year Plan as against 2.3% per annum in the 10th Five Year Plan. Rural wages also have increased. Farmers have been given handsome prices for their crops. This year has seen record foodgrain production, crossing 250 million tonnes for the first time in our history.

    • More than Rs. 2 lakh crores was disbursed to 2.75 crore marginal and small farmers as loans.

    • Primary school enrolment has become near universal. We have opened 51,000 schools and appointed 6.8 lakh teachers in the last two years.

    • India has been declared polio-free.

    • The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme now reaches one out of five households in the country.

    • India was the second fastest growing telecom market in the world. We added nearly 10 crore new telephone connections last year, including more than 4 crore in rural areas.

    • We added new power generation capacity of 20,000 MW last year which is almost equal to the capacity added during the entire 10th Five Year Plan Period. We provided 35 lakh new electricity connections in rural India last year.

    Affirmative measures to help expand opportunities for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, minorities and women are a top priority for the UPA government. These efforts are being intensified.

    Last year saw the flawless test launch of the Agni-5 long range ballistic missile and the successful fabrication and launch of the RISAT-1 satellite which can take images even in cloudy weather. I congratulate our scientists for these great achievements.

    The internal security scenario has by and large been satisfactory. The peaceful conduct of Panchayat elections in Kashmir and the high voter turnout show that things are changing in the State. The scourge of Naxalism however continues to be a major problem and I seek the cooperation of the concerned State Governments to tackle this menace.

    In foreign policy, there were significant developments in our relations with neighbours, notably with Bangladesh, Pakistan and Myanmar. The success of the BRICS Summit held in New Delhi reflects India's growing presence on the world stage. As a responsible member of the United Nations Security Council and other international fora, we have made important contributions in addressing global issues.

    Despite these real achievements, there are uncertainties and a large unfinished agenda before us.

    Difficult decisions have to be taken on both spending and revenue mobilisation. Both the Centre and the States have to be fiscally responsible. We also have to remove implementation bottlenecks that are preventing large projects from getting off the ground. We have to quicken the pace of implementation of our policies of inclusive growth, particularly in the areas of health and education. We need to improve coordination between the Centre and States on important issues that face the country.

    Some people have questioned the sustainability of our growth process. I recognise that we face pressures on our balance of payments and that the fiscal situation needs careful management. Determined measures are needed to boost the climate for industrial investment, both domestic and foreign. An urgent priority is to resolve issues relating to land acquisition, resettlement and the environment. We need to strengthen our food security system by building more storage capacity. We must address the scourge of malnutrition through multi-dimensional interventions. We need to scale up our skill development programme.

    We know there is public frustration and anger on the issue of corruption. I wish to assure our people that we are working sincerely to address this issue through both legislative and administrative measures. Legislation is before Parliament to establish a Lokpal, ensure time-bound delivery of goods and services and judicial accountability.

    We are trying to ensure exemplary punishment to the guilty while also ensuring that public servants feel secure in taking bona fide decisions that are in the national interest.

    I am confident that the resilience and hard work of our people, supported by actions of our government, will ensure that our economy bounces back.

    I pledge that the UPA government will work with renewed determination to pursue these tasks.

    I urge all political parties to rise above partisan considerations and strengthen our hands so that India can face the uncertain global environment with greater confidence and rise united to the challenges we face as a nation.

    As we enter our ninth year in office, I reiterate the commitment of our Government to the values, the objectives and the policies that have brought new hope to millions of our fellow citizens. Jai Hind.

    Bu they are giving it a different twist.

    But the best was when Mani Shankar Aiyer was kicked around the deck last night in the Headline Today TV show and all his arrogance and clever use of English made him look like the fool that he is!

    In another TV show, it was wonderful to see that clot Digvijay Singh lieing through his teeth!

    It was funny to see Manish Tewari creating his own parameters of good governance in the country. Economy and inflation were not part of his parameters...lol

    India's Telecoms Scandal - Top 10 Abuses of Power - TIME

    Well dont tell those loss & gain farsch to me like ur SIBAL chacha told in parliament to save congress's face ok



    oh yes why not ???? it's for india only not for UPA my dear congressi

    u forgot how great kalmadi uncle did secret dealings under the leadership of IOA & that even crowd booed him in ground in front
    of foreign guests .
    & india's image was indirectly tainted for such corrupt officials

    well i did agree MMS did a desperate job to save india's face & thank god he somehow suceeded in the end to save india's face.

    u should look Standard / poor's report about India who is to be blame my dear congressi??
    the common man ,or the industrialists or the Government
    Rupees constant fall against a dollar is a not a good sign for our economy for sure

    well infact states like Gujarat shows the promise how economic development should be if all states of india develop like it then one day we would defintely be a economic super power for sure



    haa haa
    my dear congressi the petrol price has risen 7.50 rupees from tonight .Who knows it may further increase further & how that increase will have catastrophic effect on inflation we all know .:lol:



    My dear
    i know this is not the right place to speak such things ,but forget more than enough preparedness but minimum basic preparedness is also not done .
    Common tell me if thats not the case why the government is fast tracking the purchases of those equipements which our Army
    chief had stated in that secret letter.
    I know it's bad to say such things in this forum ,but defintely it should have been sorted much earlier for sure



    my dear congressi
    do i have to remind u what happened in Sharm-el-Sheikh in NAM summit that made an uproar in parliament
    meanwhile our country was reeling under the trauma of terrorist attack in Mumbai
    Balochistan bungle may prove costly - Times Of India
    India's Baloch dilemma | Foreign Policy Blogs

    hmm aleast he brought the attention of indian public about this black money issue ,i know all politicians have black money,Dont
    pass the buck on another party to justify UPA's politician & ministers are saint & have real interest to bring black money back.




    hmm sure why not ???
    instead bringing the upliftment of downtrodden & poor people of all religion & caste why target only a particular community & religion .& now what does that mean????
    it is petty votebank politics my dear congressi.



    well ask urselves why are they doing this & what is the need????
    Had any earliear government done that.???if thats not a point why there was an uproar in parliament by BJP over this issue.Huh??

    Seriuosly, Congra-Ass voters need a brain scan to see if it is really brain that is in their heads:frusty:

    There was a genius who some time back was starting to argue that Congr-Ass is at present the best party of India. I really dont think I would have changed thoughts of some one with that much logic.:rolleyes:.

    And I dont think Indians deserve anything more than the Congr-Ass govt. People get the shit they deserve.

    We Need, CON-gr-ASS in power because they are inclusive and are Secular:frusty:, despite their massive scams.

    OK Mr. CON-gr-ASS fanboy, Use your brain for atleast once. Dont let it rot. The reservation for SC/ST is not Hindus alone but for SC/ST of all religion-got it? So dont give the same shit as the Muslim members give for justifying the reservation for their religion, saying that the reservation for SC/ST is a reservation for the HIndus and they deserve(deserves a special :frusty:) reservation for their religion. The only thing those idiots, who want special provisions for their religion should be deported to P**kistan:thumb:. After all it is a big reservation for them already.



    And still morons are there to defend that shit party as the best thing that could have happened to India:frusty:

    As I said sir, these idiots need a brain scan--->>>:truestory:
