‘Whenever the government interferes in business, there are losses’
PM Modi said that public sector companies will be kept at a minimum level in four areas of strategic importance. Also, when the government does monetization, only the private sector fills that empty space. The private sector brings together the things adopted globally with investment. He said that the government’s job is not to do business. The government’s job is to focus on the development project. Whenever the government interferes in business, there are big losses. A government bound by rules cannot take difficult and risky commercial decisions. He told that the government is working on new national infrastructure projects worth Rs 111 lakh crore.
