Call yourself a politician whether you do good or evil!!!

  • When an investor comes to the state, he should be treated as a Jawai (son-in-law) but he is actually treated as a Jogi (beggar).  

  • I think we need to put systems in place. I am the only finance minister who was not the tax minister. I was only the expenditure minister

  • It’s Shaheed Bhagat Singh’s birth place. It’s very symbolic. We want to resolve that day that we will start the next freedom struggle. And the freedom is against poverty, illiteracy, drug abuse and unemployment.  
  • Believe me no one lights a lamp at their grave today. But people who fought for the downtrodden, for the weak— Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Shivaji Maratha, Maharana Pratap — crores of people visit their graves and worship them. What I am trying to say is that these are very exciting times to be an Indian and to be a politician. India is growing now, every seven years, our economy would double. We feel with our mortal hands we could change the destiny of our nation.
