Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 20 attended the inaugural session of '100 years of Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India in Delhi where he said that his government has not only stabilized the economy, which was heading towards disaster during the end of Congress rule but also made efforts to bring discipline to it. Speaking at the session, PM Modi said, "5-6 years back, our economy was heading towards disaster.
Speaking about the ambitious target of making India a $5 trillion economy, PM Modi said, "When I set the $5 trillion target, I was aware about the negative campaign against it. The $5 trillion target is not spontaneous. It is being debated for the last five years. In 2014, I set the target of making India open-defecation free and the country made efforts to achieve this. People's mobilisation and system modernisation are important for any programme to succeed."
