Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Groups took to his official social media handle to augment the contest between the GDP growth of China and India. He stated that the anticipation of dropping behind China with regards to growth should "get our competitive juices flowing".
Anand Mahindra dispensed a report by Bloomberg that stated that China that is expected to set forth the fourth quarter and yearly growth of GDP on Friday would issue a statement saying that it reached their ecomomy growth of 6 per cent to 6.5 per cent in 2019. Mahendra stated that ever since our growth forecast held India’s growth rate at 5 per cent, India will drop behind China again.
"So with a forecast rate of growth of 5% for our GDP in '19-'20 we'll fall behind them again? This should get our competitive juices flowing. Nirmala Sitharaman ji, let's surprise the world with a blockbuster of a budget including some dramatic moves. And sprint back in front...," he said.
