Addressing his second press conference in as many days to highlight achievements of Narendra Modi government in first year in office, Jaitley said "restlessness" of people for the economy to grow at a faster pace should put pressure on Congress to shed anti-growth and anti-development agenda.
"In the past one year inflation has been under control to a great extent...Overall inflation situation has been much better than it has been in the past one decade," he told reporters at the BJP headquarters here.
Asked about the challenges facing the economy, Finance Minister said global economic situation and domestic agrarian scenario were a challenge.
"Domestic investment has to pick up, that is a challenge and even though on economic front we have succeeded in some areas...these are three areas where there are challenges," he said, adding the global economic situation was beyond the control of the government.
