Listing out the achievements of nine years of UPA government at the Centre, Prime Minsiter Manmohan Singh said on Wednesday that next year they will report directly to the people to seek a renewed mandate.

Starting on a philosophical note the PM said on the fourth Anniversary of UPA-II government, “UPA government has taken the country forward but we have many more miles to travel.”

Manmohan Singh while unveiling UPA’s report card began with the achievements of his government on the economic front.

“The country saw an improved performance of economy and inclusive growth under our government. We are the one of the fastest growing economy in the world including the years where we saw a slowdown,” he said.
