P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
According to the Survey, the top three ‘structural reforms’ were the
(1) anti farmer laws
(2) the new MSME definition and
(3) the four Labour Codes.
The farmers have rejected the three Farm laws.
The MSMEs have said that they had got no relief at all.
The Trade Unions have rejected the four Labour Codes!
What is reform is what the people have rejected. It is the new definition of ‘reform’ and ‘democracy’
The Economic Survey is “witnessing a V-shaped recovery”. The IMF says that the Indian economy will reach the pre-Covid level only in 2025!
