The nation’s economy deteriorated due to Nehru’s speech at Red Fort : Vishvas Sarang

Bhopal (MP) – Vishvas Sarang, Minister for Medical Education from Madhya Pradesh claimed that the credit for increasing inflation by crippling the economy after the Independence goes to Nehru’s speech at the Red Fort on 15th August 1947. Inflation does not rise in a day or two. The foundation of the economy is not laid in a day or two. The country’s economy has deteriorated due to the mistakes in the speech that Jawaharlal Nehru delivered from the ramparts of the Red Fort on 15th August 1947. On the other hand, BJP Government has strengthened the economy and doubled the income of people. He was speaking with the reporters in Bhopal.

He added, the country’s economy is primarily based on agriculture, but Nehru neglected it. Seventy per cent of our population is dependent on agriculture, but he did not care about this sector. The village economy was sustainable and self-reliant. He put his western mindset in this and ended the village economy. The wrong policies of Jawaharlal Nehru are responsible for the present situation. Industrialisation was fine but it should have been based on agriculture.
