New Delhi, Feb 5 : NCP lawmaker Supriya Sule on Wednesday said if the country was improving in all it's indices, then why was no investment coming to the country. Speaking on the Motion of Thanks on the President's Address in the Lok Sabha, she said the government should introspect that if the country was improving in the Ease of Doing Business and other indices, then why was the country not getting investments.
Ms Sule alleged that the government was evading the agenda of the country's economy. On Global Hunger Index, the country ranked at 102 out of 117, slipping by nine positions Trinamaol lawmaker Saugata Roy lashed out at the Modi government and accused it of 'persecuting and polarising'. Prof Roy read out a controversial article of The Economist in the House, which was opposed by External Affairs Minister Dr S Jaishankar.
TDP lawmaker Jayadev Galla said his state Andhra Pradesh was on the brink of economic collapse and there was lack of promise support from the Central government.
He raised the issue of Andhra Pradesh government's proposal to have three capitals for the state. The government has proposed to retain Amaravati as the legislative capital, while making Visakhapatnam the home for executive and Kurnool the judicial capital.
Mr Galla said Amaravati was decided as state capital and a Government Order was issued in the context and the same was recognised by the Central government. 'If we have three capitals, will the government provide funding and infrastructure for three capitals,' he asked. Countering him, YRSCP member K Sridhar said it was for decentralised development of the state. (UNI)
