By Naresh Minocha

"AS regards import compression, you may well be right that in previous years, there was some fat in the import bill.

It will hurt industrial production, lead to large scale unemployment and will give rise to serious unrest and disruption. “It is in this context that I seek your understanding of what we have been doing to deal with the worst economic crisis in the history of Independent India.
