Mumbai: India’s premium broadcast network, Times Network, is hosting edition 9 of its annual signature event, India Economic Conclave (IEC) scheduled on 1 & 2 June 2023 at Taj Palace, New Delhi. A distinguished global platform, India Economic Conclave has been instrumental in shaping a national discourse on the country’s economic growth. Driving the theme, “India: The Emerging Third Superpower", IEC 2023 will lead critical conversations with eminent policymakers, global visionaries, and iconic leaders from India Inc on India's growth as a leading global superpower.

Speaking at Times Network India Economic Conclave 2023, Minister of Sports, Youth Affairs and Information & Broadcasting Anurag Thakur said, "India is improving its image which was damaged due to the previous government. People have selected Modi Ji in a hope to uplift India. Four crore poor have houses today. 9.60 crore have gas cylinders connections. 12 crore houses have been given tap water and 12 crore houses have been given toilets. 220 crore vaccines, double ration for 28 months, and revoking of Article 370 were never thought of. Nobody ever imagined that India would be the fifth-largest economy in the world. Nobody ever thought that there would be a grand Ram Mandir.

India is the fastest growing economy today as per the prediction and report of Morgan Stanley. The steps taken by the Modi govt in the last nine years, the reforms we have taken, and the kind of capital investment the govt has done, is indicative of growth. The indicative number for this financial year is 7.2 percent, which is highest globally, a good sign for Indian economy. The capital of Jan Dhan account is now a part of the Indian economy which is more than 2 lakh crore. Only Modi has brought initiatives to uplift the poor. SC, ST, and the economically weaker section have benefitted the most because of these efforts. Rahul Gandhi has tried to bash during the New parliament inauguration."

Speaking on the wrestler's protest, "For the wrestlers, we will try to provide justice as soon as possible. Right now wrestling federation of India is not administrating any day-to-day activities, IOA is conducting camps where thousands of players are participating, competing, and getting selected. We are still waiting to complete the police investigation and the government is bound to conduct an unbiased investigation. After the FIR, there have been 14 meetings with IOA. Mary Kom and other key players are members of this committee. The government has done a lot for players. Along with motivation, infrastructure and increasing the budget to 2800 crore are the markers of it. There are several rewards and international training for the players, all are beared by the Indian government which was reflected in Tokyo Olympics, Paralympics and deaf Olympics.

NCT region has all the embassies, so Congress and BJP agree to create no fuss in this region. Congress has taken every opportunity to bash India on international platforms whereas Modi is always awarded for his efforts on the same. Australian PM has designated Modi as “The Boss”. Using technology, we have removed four crore 70 lac duplicate ration card in the system. Almost two lac 70 thousand money has been saved because of this. Ayushman Bharat offers five lac rupees to every poor. 68000 additional doctors seats have been added, 309 hospitals, seven IITs seven IIMS, and 15 metros. We will be the third-largest metro network in the next two years. We are working 111 waterways and constructed more than 55000 km road as of today.  The banks are also making profits now as compared to performance under the previous government."
