New Delhi, Jul 6: Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, on Monday, Jul 7 said that Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has done an admirable job by reconciling short-term requirements of the economy with medium term goals.

"I believe he has done an admirable job in reconciling short-term requirements of the economy with the medium term goals of our economic and social policy and the commitments that we made to our people in our election manifesto," he said.

"He has chosen a strategy to concentrate on increasing investments in the infrastructure sector both in the public sector and in the private sector through PPP route," he added.

"The strategy of the budget is to ensure that our economy recaptures the rhythm of the accelerated growth process. It seeks to honour in large measure, the commitments that we have made to our people to work steadfastly for the well being of the Aam Aadmi," he said.
