The Economic Times - - Front Page - HI­MANG­SHU WATTS

The Naren­dra Modi govern­ment should dis­en­tan­gle more than 100 projects worth .` 7 lakh crore and usher in a new pol­icy par­a­digm to boost in­fra­struc­ture in­vest­ment to $10 tril­lion in three decades, said Suresh Prabhu, who was a min­is­ter in the Va­j­payee regime and is be­lieved to be close to Modi. Prabhu told ET that he ex­pects the new govern­ment to quickly an­nounce poli­cies on in­fra­struc­ture, agri­cul­ture, gen­der is­sues, ed­u­ca­tion and health­care. “I think in the first few months of the govern­ment he will be able to con­vert these state­ments into im­ple­mentable poli­cies,” said Prabhu, who had can­celled his visit to the Whar­ton Eco­nomic Fo­rum in March last year to protest against the can­cel­la­tion of Modi’s key­note ad­dress.
