Covid-19 pandemic has pushed the whole world into an unprecedented health crisis and economic turmoil but Prime Minister Narendra Modi is optimistic that India will still be able to achieve $5 trillion economy target by 2024.

In his first interview after the Coronavirus outbreak, PM Modi said that Indian economy is on the road to recovery as economic indicators suggest the same.

Record production and procurement in agriculture, record high FDI inflows, jump in auto and tractor sales, improvement in manufacturing and addition to (EPFO) subscriber base, improvement in job market were the economic indicators cited by the Prime Minister.

“Today, our country is optimistic of the future, it is optimistic of reaching $5 trillion target. And, this optimism gives us confidence. Today, if our Corona Warriors are working 18-20 hours to serve patients, it also inspires us to put in more hard-work. So what if we could not move at the desired pace this year due to the pandemic! We will try and run faster in the next year to make up for the loss. Nothing great ever gets done if we get deterred by obstacles in our path. By not aspiring, we guarantee failure,” PM Modi said.
