She added that India is now the fifth-biggest economy in the world.
Here are the lines Finance Minister said in the parliament - "Humara watan khilte hue Shalimar bagh jaise, humara watan Dal lake mein khilte hue kamal jaisa, nau jawanon ke garam khoon jaisa, mera watan tera watan, humara watan, duniya ka sabse pyara watan".
The poem was written by Pandit Dinanath Kaul.
