India would leave China behind in terms of growth and development in the coming days, union Minister of state for Finance Jayant Sinha said on Monday.
"In the coming days, India will leave China behind as far as growth and development matter," Sinha told the media here.
He was on a visit to Bihar to review the progress of rescue and relief operations after earthquakes and thunderstorms caused heavy loss of life and property, including standing crops.
The minister, however, refused to say how India would move ahead of China, the world's second largest economy.
Upbeat over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's just-concluded visit to China, Sinha said India would soon benefit from it.
Stating that the prices had come down under MOdi's rule of the last one year, the minister said the country's growth and development has been taking shape.
