Kalam calls for national solution to tackle insurgency

Thursday 16 June 2005

New Delhi, June 16 (PTI): Advocating a national solution to the problem of insurgency confronting certain States, President A P J Abdul Kalam on Wednesday said this could be found through regional development and security and employment generation.

Kalam, who made a power point presentation titled "Dynamics of Development" at the two-day Governors conference that ended here yesterday, hoped that Government would take fast action on all important issues and work for time-bound solutions.

The President focussed on the challenge of lifting 260 million people living below the poverty line through an annual economic growth rate of 10 per cent over a 10-year period.

He felt that India was well placed as it was in an ascending economic trajectory with rising foreign exchange reserves, decreasing inflation rate, global recognition of its technological competence and the energy of 540 million youth.

The President highlighted the need for five integrated actions for a developed India covering agriculture and food processing, education and health care, information and communication technology, infrastructure development and self- reliance in critical technologies.
