Rahul Gandhi Budget Speech March 13 2008 New Delhi www.pressbrief.in Mr. Speaker Sir, thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak in support of the budget 2008-2009. Each one of us is responsible for listening to the people of India and reflecting their voices in this august house. It is therefore a privilege for me to put forth my views here today. Mr. Speaker Sir, there are two distinct voices among India's people today. The louder of these voices comes from an India that is empowered, an India that has proven to itself and to the world that it will shape the future. It is an India rich with opportunity and talent, straining to be unleashed. The other voice is yet to be empowered. It is not as loud, but reverberates across the country. It is the voice of disenfranchised people reminding us that they too have potential to fulfil. They too are enterprising, hardworking, and self-reliant, and they ask only to be given an opportunity. Some believe that the progress of these two India's is not just separable but mutually exclusive. Some believe that India can shine only when we direct attention and resources to those Indians who already soar, while ignoring the aspirations of the disempowered. Others believe that the poor will progress only if we stifle our nation's entrepreneurial energy. Our government believes that India's growth can and must be symbiotic. The two India's are fundamentally inseparable. Our philosophy is not to choose which India
