NEW DELHI: The Narendra Modi imprint was all over Pranab Mukherjee’s 55-minute Presidential Address to a joint session of Parliament on Monday — the first one delineating the five Ts, three Ds and three Ss of his new government, determined to revive ‘Brand India’. Explaining further, Mukherjee said the five Ts are Tradition, Talent, Tourism, Trade and Technology, tools which the new government will use to make progress in the next 60 months. The three Ds are Democracy, Demography and Demand.

P.PNGWith the Ts and Ds on its side, the government will “actualise the aspirations” and be able to say with “confidence and pride that we have done it” in no time. The three Ss — Skill, Speed and Scale — will help India set up “world-class investment and industrial regions”, with a single-window clearance system both at the Centre and the States.

Noting that the country was passing through an “extremely difficult phase” on the economic front, the President pointed out that GDP growth has been less than five per cent, tax collection has declined and inflation continues to be at an unprecedented level. “Putting the economy back on track is paramount for my government. We will work together to usher our economy into high growth path, rein in inflation, reignite the investment cycle, accelerate job creation and restore confidence of the domestic as well as international community in our economy,” he said.

The new government would create an “enabling atmosphere for a labour-intensive growth that eliminates poverty and allocates natural resources in a transparent manner”.
