Pranab Mukherjee Quote
Belying the prophecies of doom by many a self-styled Cassandra, the economy has emerged stronger as a result of adjustment effort mounted by us...; We have not cut subsidies. We have not cut wages. We have not compromised on planning... We have not faltered in our commitment to anti-poverty programmes... We have come out of it with our heads high.
1984 Budget speech, Quoted on BBC News, "Pranab Mukherjee's chequered career", June 26, 2012.
