Gujarat lagging behind in health, education: Niti Aayog Vice Chairman
Rajiv Kumar, Vice-Chairman,Niti Aayog: I was fearing for the life of Niti Aayog & for my own future, with opposition leader having declared that they'll close it down. It's a wonderful organization which is a creation of our PM's vision to bring transformational change in economy
NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman: It's an old pattern followed by Congress. They say & do anything to win elections. Poverty was removed in 1966, One Rank One Pension was later implemented, everyone received proper education under Right of Education! So you see then can say&do anything.

A Panagariya, ex- Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog on NYAY: No one has given details of scheme that how Rs 3.6 Lakh Cr will be arranged to implement it. It's more than our defence budget.Fiscal situation is always tight, it's almost impossible to take out 13% of the budget.(01.04) (2/2)
