October 11: India Inc needs to see that the government has opened up rural markets, says Manish Tewari, I&B Minister. India was 'simmering' rather than 'shining' in 2004, he says, adding that UPA empowered rural India via the entitlement architecture. UPA has been wrongly criticized for creating an urban-rural divide, he says, adding that even if this were true, it benefited corporate India as well.
