New Delhi: The mandate for the 15th Lok Sabha would give the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government a freedom to pursue reforms and revive economy, without bothering about placating hotch-potch allies like the Left, leading industrialist Vijay Mallya said on Saturday.
Describing the mandate as vote for stability, Mallya, the promoter of Kingfisher Airlines and UB group, said the election outcome would help Manmohan Singh, an accomplished economist, push harder for the economic revival to get back to 9% growth.
“It is a vote for stability and, more importantly, a vote for the Congress. It can pursue its policies and will not have to worry about the Left ... The ruling combination will not have to worry about the hotch-potch partners,” Mallya said.
When asked whether the mandate would help faster recovery of the Indian economy, Mallya said, “Absolutely, without doubt.”
He added that the mandate would offer the youth great opportunities for the future under the stewardship of Manmohan Singh.
