New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: In 2019, we the people of India, set an ambition of making India a $5 trillion economy for 2024-25. However, Covid-19 brought huge uncertainties leading to severe economic squeeze leading to Atma Nirbhar Bharat packages which have now put India back into a growth trajectory. In that sense, Budget 2021-22 is expected to be a major take-off point for India.
This National Youth Parliament, scheduled on 7th – 8th Jan 2021, is to endeavour to channelize the energies of Indian Youth to lay their economic agenda and set forth a Budget that propels India into a high growth trajectory.
Make India SONE-KI-CHIDIYA again.
