Less cash will bring more transparency: Rudy

Kolkata, Dec 16 (IANS) Union Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy on Friday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s push towards a cashless economy, saying less cash will bring more transparency.

“We, as part of central government, are fully committed and proud of our prime minister who has started a crusade against corruption in the country. The common man has welcomed the stand of central government as they understand the ‘less-cash’ economy is more transparent and effective,” Rudy, the Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, said here at an event.

Responding to the continuous disruption in arliament’s winter session, the minister said restlessness of the opposition parties was causing chaos.

“It is wrong to say the ruling party is shying away from the discussion. We are ready to hold a talk since the first day. The opposition have become so restless as they have recognised common man’s support to the Prime Minister’s decision,” he said.

Speaking at the event, organised by National Skill Development Council (NSDC) and Pradhan Mantri Kushal Vikas Yojona (PMKVY) that certified the goldsmiths under central government’s ‘Recognition of Prior Learning Programme’, Rudy said: “There are 35 lakh goldsmiths in the nation but no one came forward to recognise their skill before.”

This certification is a benchmark in the way of India’s skill development initiative, he added.
