While Shatrughan Sinha is all for his “dashing dynamic action hero” Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radical economic reforms , he is also apprehensive of whether we are heading through the motions of progress and development too fast.
“I am not sure that a majority of Indians follow what GST is. We’ve seen the peril of hasty economic reform(the demonetization in November 2016). I just hope there won’t be confusion over the finer points this time. A large part of the Indian population doesn’t know about digitized banking and taxation. Forget about digitization, a majority of Indians don’t even own a PAN card number, ” says Shatrughan Sinha, adding that he is not questioning the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister.
“Not at all. I am very confident that Modi Saab and Jaitley Saab know what they’re doing. I am just not sure if the public is ready for these radical reforms. I hope and pray they are ready,” he signs off unsurely.
