India pursuing ‘inclusive growth’ schemes: krishna

Though India still has to travel a long distance to eradicate poverty, it is pursuing “inclusive growth” schemes which have been designed to ensure that all sections of society benefit from them, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna has said.“We need to, however, be cognisant that the largest concentration of poor in the world continues to remain in India and South Asia,” Krishna said at the closing session of the three-day Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) summit here yesterday.

Though India still has to travel “a long distance to put poverty behind us,” the country should not be “underestimated,” he said.

Krishna asserted that New Delhi is pursuing schemes of “inclusive growth” so that the fruits of growth reach everyone.

“This, indeed, is the main objective of India’s ambitious socio-economic development programmes,” he said.
