Modi government broke the back of 'back-breaking' inflation, says Piyush Goyal
"This was primarily because food inflation increased (during 2009-14). In contrast to that, our government broke the back-breaking inflation. We have brought down average inflation to 4.6 per cent, which is lower than the inflation during the tenure of any other government," Goyal said in his Budget speech in Parliament.
