In a statement, Mr. Jakhar said by providing a bailout package of Rs. 14,000 crores to the ailing UTI, the NDA Government had taken the right step though belated to safeguard the interests of the middle class people.
He said it must not be forgotten that till last year, it was the agriculture sector which had helped the GDP to grow at around six per cent annually.
