Infrastructure reform is a priority concern: PM
Talking about government’s agenda to push faster reforms, the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that the first priority for his government would be to sustain the momentum of growth that it has built. “Second, we must ensure that infrastructure does well, is well-managed, its reform is a priority concern. It is in this context that the procurement system in the public sector must be made more transparent – we are all working towards a law which will lay more emphasis on transparency,” the Prime Minister said while talking to select newspaper editors in New Delhi.
With regard to the management of scarce natural resources – particularly the land, he said that land acquisition will require modification.
