Joining them in what was bound to be an illuminating discussion were Surjit Bhalla and Rajiv Lall. The Chief Guest for the evening was Arun Shourie the former union minister. Anil Dharker addressed the welcome speech and introduced the panelists.
Arun Shourie described the book as ” Great optimism, and the book is addressed to decision makers of the country”. He added, “We should hold government to do things positively and in certain time frames.”
Talking on the new government Mr. Shourie said, ” Modi will do everything, but not alone! There is a concept call -EVERY ONE, NOT ANYONE-”
The book does not put all the responsibilities on the government, public responsibilities are mentioned efficiently in the book. Experts have set the reform agenda for the country in the book.
