In dealing with problems, we must not lose sight of the fact that
is one large common market. Our Constitution makers gave us this unique privilege of being a vast common market that people can move freely from one part of our country to another where goods can move freely from one part of our country to another. In other countries in India Europe, people have struggled to create common markets. This is a gift that has come to us from the founding fathers of our Republic and you must be always be mindful of preserving, building on and nurturing that concern for the unity and integrity of our country.
We are getting growth rates of 8-9% per annum but there are people who believe they are left out. When they are left out, I think the grievances against the system multiply and some of them take the form of challenging the authority of law and order. The crime rate goes up probably it is inherent in processes of urbanization that incidents of urban crime will be a problem for quite some time to come and it may be an increasing problem.
