Foreign aid for some more years

Wed 13 Sep 2017


The Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Mr. Morarji Desai expressed the belief to-day [[September 12] that given a satisfactory inflow of foreign aid over the next 10 or 12 years India could dispense with all further foreign assistance. In his first public address since arriving in this capital, Mr. Desai told a National Press Club luncheon audience that meanwhile neither the U.S. nor India could afford to get tired when the goal of Indian self-sufficiency was reasonably in sight. Mr. Desai sought to assure his American hosts that India did not look upon aid as a crutch or a substitute for domestic efforts. He also tried to remove the impression arising from reports appearing in the world Press that in recent months India was alternating front crisis to crisis.
