[01.08.2015]Ministers declare that economy is growing, but, growth of eight core industries slows down.
The BJP came to power, with a high voltage campaign, saying that there was a policy paralysis during the rule of the UPA government, as a result of which the economic growth of the country got slowed down. The party also assured the people that, it would take the country in to a high growth path. But, despite the NDA ministers announcing from roof top that the economy is growing, ground reality is something different. For example, the data released by the 'Index of Industrial Production' for the month of May, shows that the growth of eight core industries has slowed down. These industries are coal, crude oil, steel, cement, fertilisers, electricity, natural gas and refinery products.
