“It is the time to change the system in India. The historic decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ban Rs 500 and 1,000 notes has come as a shock for the corrupt, real estate people and terrorists,” said former Rotary district Governor G K Balakrishna.
He was speaking after inaugurating ‘Sambhrama Bharata’ programme organised by the 8 Rotary Associations at Saraswathipuram Rotary West auditorium.
“The economic reforms led by P V Narasimha Rao and Dr Manmohan Singh have helped to develop the country. But the revolutionary move to demonetise the notes has ensured that the Indian economy will be stable and will grow stronger,” said retired economics professor Dr K C Basavaraju. He explained the economic developments and reforms in India over the seven decades.
“Unless the mindsets of the citizens change, it is impossible to make India clean. Mysuru has received the cleanest city tag twice and it is our responsibility to maintain the tag,” said H V Rajiv, President of Mysuru District Cooperative Union.
C R Hanumanthu, Mahadevappa, K S Raghavendra, Indira Ballal, Gopal, N P Balaji, Armugam were present on the occasion.
