India can be economically developed by 2020: Kalam
Chicago: India can become economically developed by 2020 if it maintains a GDP of 10-11 percent as there are nine more years to achieve 'Vision 2020' goals, former President A P J Abdul Kalam said.

"We have nine more years for 2020 and if we maintain 10-11 percent GDP we will be economically developed," he said before a gathering of prominent Indian businessmen and social leaders at Indian Consulate here.

Kalam was speaking about the success of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and his 'Vision 2020' to make India economically developed by 2020 at the banquet organised by Indian Consul General, in Chicago, Mukta Dutta Tomar in his honour earlier this week.

He said that India's "economic growth must sustain population growth."

Speaking on India-Pakistan relations the former president said he was confident that India and Pakistan can work for people's economic development.

1: Poitive thinking is good but realistic thinking is still better. What about escalating corruption in our society? Only time will tell what will be the fate of this country by 2020 if corrution is not curbed effectively. With increasing GDP, corrupt are going to amass more wealth by unfair means creating a deeper divide between the rich and poor resulting in unrest and instability in our society.

2: Economy development is good. But more important is the development of the attitude of people. We have to strive towards getting rid of selfish thinking, bring discipline in every sphere of activity, encourage hard work, original inventions in science and technology, and above all equality of opportunity and not just equality. We have to work towards one-ness, as we are seeing more and more divisions taking place due to uneven economic development. Uniform development should be planned to spread all over the country so that every region and state develop in a uniform way.
