In today’s increasingly specialized and cut-throat world, a person needs in-depth knowledge and extensive domain expertise to handle a particular department even in a small company.

But it is highly unfortunate that people with no qualification or expertise become Presidents, Prime Ministers, ministers, and bureaucrats in India to manage highly complex domains of governance. That’s why India continues to be a poor, underdeveloped country.

As they are extremely inefficient and illiterate, Indian politicians and bureaucrats do not take decisions to resolve public problems. They keep rotating written public complaints from one desk to another.

Consequently, citizens are left with no other option but to approach the courts. As courts are always overcrowded, their decisions are either inordinately delayed or lack justice.

In order to change this ugly trend, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has decided to take expert help. He will interact with leading economists and the experts across sectors from all over the country at NITI Aayog today.

The select group of economists and sector experts have been invited by NITI Aayog for the deliberations with the Prime Minister on ‘Economic Policy: The Road Ahead’.

The discussion will focus on six broad themes: Macroeconomic Balances, Agriculture and Rural Development, Urban Development, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Employment, Manufacturing, and Exports and Health and Education.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Road Transport, Highways, Shipping and Ganga Water Rejuvenation Minister Nitin Gadkari, Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh, Minister of State- Planning Rao Inderjit Singh along with the Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog, members and CEO NITI Aayog and senior officials from the government will attend the meeting.

The emphasis is on sharing the views of the experts from all over the country on the road ahead for the economic policy to steer the nation towards a New India envisioned by the Prime Minister.
