New Delhi: Kicking off the Budget session of Parliament with her address to both Houses, President Droupadi Murmu on Wednesday listed the revocation of Article 370, law to criminalise triple talaq, and passing of the women’s reservation bill among key achievements of the government.

Murmu said that in the last 10 years, India has witnessed the completion of many works that had been awaited for decades.

“For centuries, it was the aspiration of people to see Ram temple construction. This dream has now been realised,” she said.

She also highlighted the success of various government schemes and record investment in building the country’s physical and digital infrastructure.

President Murmu said India has emerged as the fastest-growing economy despite global challenges, recording more than 7.5 percent growth for the last two consecutive quarters. She also said that the government had successfully contained inflation despite global challenges, thus shielding the common man from price rises.

Murmu highlighted that India is now among the top five economies in the world, with exports and foreign direct investment rising over the years. She also cited a Niti Aayog report to state that nearly 25 crore people have come out of poverty in the last 10 years.

The President said the government has, in the last few years, laid a strong foundation for good governance and transparency.

“Our government has been continuously working for ease of doing business. In the past few years, as many as 40,000 compliances have either been removed or simplified. As many as 63 provisions in the Companies Act and Limited Liability Partnership Act have been de-criminalised,” she said.

Murmu said that the government has been strengthening the MSME sector by taking various measures.

She noted the progress made towards digital India and said that the country accounts for nearly 46 percent of the digital transactions happening across the world.

Murmu said that India is currently witnessing record investment in infrastructure.

“In the last 10 years, 3.75 lakh kilometres of new roads have been constructed in rural areas. The length of the National Highway has increased from 90,000 kilometres to 1.46 lakh kilometres,” she said.

The President said that the government has been continuously working to make farming more profitable.

She also mentioned the government’s efforts to ensure internal security and said that today there is peace in Kashmir and incidents of separatist activities have considerably come down in the North East.

“Whether it is terrorism or expansionism, our Armed Forces have been dealing with them following the principle of tit for tat,” she said.
