Focus on infrastructure
New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who had promised a 100-day action plan for his government if returned to power, is expected to give emphasis to the United Progressive Alliance's unfinished agenda, especially in the infrastructure and development sectors, and announce a fresh stimulus package to pull the economy out of its present slowdown.
According to senior officials, he wants to hit the ground running and will be directing ministries and departments, once government formation is over, to prepare detailed action plans themselves.
