Kalam for region-oriented approach

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam on Tuesday favoured a region-oriented approach to development in a federal set-up.

Addressing the 4th International Conference on Federalism here, he said that developmental schemes and solutions to problems need to be region-based, because India’s resources, climate and terrain were region-based with unique cultures of regions. The States should work to their competence and complement one another and the overall planning at the Central level should focus on regional development, he said.

Minister for Power Sushil Kumar Shinde said a country as vast as India could not have progressed as well as it did without a federal structure.
