New Delhi, Feb 16 (IANS) The upcoming budget will see reforms, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Wednesday stressing that the government has its economic agenda in place.
“The economic agenda is there. There is the food security bill, the Right to Education (RTE) Act is now a reality, the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) reform is a reality, there have been reforms in the National Rural Health Mission,” Singh said.
“The same way we are going to have a fresh wave in infrastructure investment with the help of the new Public Private Partnership model. These are not big reforms and I hope in the current budget you will see the reform agenda that our government has,” he added.
