Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman made a big statement on Wednesday about those who left the country in cases of financial irregularities. Apart from this, he said that the people who manipulated before the NDA government were 'happy' in the country. He said on a private TV channel that after the NDA came to power, such people understood that they could not get that facility in this government, that is why they probably understood their goodness in getting out of the country. At the moment, it will not benefit them because the central government is not going to stop the cases going on against them. We will bring them back to India and they will have to face the law.

On the allegations of central investigative agencies like CBI, ED and Income Tax Department working on the target of the Bharatiya Janata Party, he said that these agencies work under the government, not any party. He said that cases that require some kind of action, at first sight, cannot be stopped simply because they can be said to be politically motivated.

The central government is pushing the four engines associated with the country's economic development, public investment, private investment, private consumption, and exports. Apart from this, he said that there has been an increase of 22 percent in government investment during the current financial year from April to November. He said that since November 2019, the GST collection figure has been more than one lakh crore rupees every month. The increase in tax collection is an indication of the return of economic activity in the country.

He said that the government is constantly taking steps to give money in the hands of the people. In this series, the government is sending more and more money through the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT). Along with this, the Finance Ministry and RBI are working together to ensure the availability of cash and loans. He also praised RBI for a total reduction of 1.35 percent in the repo rate last year. He said that RBI is playing an active role to speed up the growth rate.
