London, June 22: Haryana chief minister om prakash
Chautala today asked European investors not to be scared of Pakistani propaganda and go ahead with investing in India as there was no threat of war between the two neighbours.
"Despite gravest provocations by Pakistan, Prime Minister Atal bihari Vajpayee had taken certain initiatives to defuse tension" and had recently withdrawn the restrictions imposed on overflights of Pakistani aircraft over Indian airspace, Chautala told reporters after an interactive session with
representatives of prominent British firms, financial institutions and NRIs here.
"Please do not get swayed by the propoganda of India's rivals as there are those who cannot digest India's growing strength in the international arena," Chautala, who is heading an official-cum-business delegation on a five-nation tour to attract foreign investment, said.
"Our economic policies are liberal, we have an open market and we strongly believe in economic competitiveness," he said.
Referring to the September 11 attack, the Chief Minister asked the entrepreneurs "not to get scared due to these cowardly acts and continue to make significant contributions to the growth of the economy".
