Describing the government as “decisive” where no policy paralysis slowed decision-making, President Droupadi Murmu on Tuesday said the Amrit Kaal -- 25 years towards the centenary of India’s independence -- was around the corner when India would see “no poverty and a happy and satisfied middle class”. 

Almost all the metrics cited by the President compared the period 2004-2009 with 2014-2022: The first when the Congress-led coalition was in power and the second when the Narendra Modi-led coalition was in power. There was no mention of the earlier Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, which was led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
