We immediately got into action and confiscated the assets of corrupt public servants. We have confiscated houses of a senior IAS officer and an ex-DGP. We have always supported move against corruption

We will remain the fastest growing economy this year: Arun Jaitley

In terms of the way of life, We had a pakka khata, and kachcha khata. Do developed economies behave like this?Look at how politics is funded. It is very hush hush.


Because it is such a cosy situation, you don't have to take steps

But if we confront it, it will be for the better. Rates will come down, there will be more volume (of money) in the formal economy.
