A politician need not necessarily be an economist. Neither is it required that he be an expert on renewable energy. He may not be proficient on infrastructure planning or be adroit towards managing natural resources. Instead, a politician ought to be a person savvy enough to manage diverse fields with an aim to enable the country realise her true potential. This essentially underlines Nitin Gadkari's political philosophy. Whether, it was the execution of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway way back in 1999 as Maharashtra's PWD Minster or the social changes ushered in by his entrepreneurial initiatives in Nagpur or more recently his path-breaking moves as the BJP President, Gadkari is a maverick who likes to do things differently. And effectively. In this book, his first in English, Nitin Gadkari talks about his aspirations for the country. He roots for bio-fuel and solar energy. He talks about managing our natural resources better besides giving our agricultural and rural sector its long standing due. He delves upon the fallacies that hold us back as a nation and suggests ways to power ahead. Spoken to bestselling author Tuhin A. Sinha, India Aspires gives a rare insight into the thoughts of Nitin Gadkari and spells out his agenda for the nation. -- Publisher website
