In an exclusive video interview with VCCircle, PN Vijay, a financial commentator and investment banker, shares his views on what should be the economic agenda for the new dispensation at the centre. He also critically analyses the UPA regime— the good and the bad. He also argues that the foreign institutional investors have huge expectations from a possible Narendra Modi-led government and would be left disappointed if things don’t move at a pace as they expect. He also asserts that the new dispensation should not shy away from undertaking some tough decisions to bring about structural reforms in an attempt to boost the economy. He was, however, quick to add that BJP’s alliance with RSS could pose a challenge here.
Vijay was the former country head, merchant banking for Citibank before he set up his own boutique advisory firm—PN Vijay Financial Services. He has also been the chief of BJP’s economic cell in the past.
