Attributing the recent crash in stock market to global factors, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said there was no need for “exaggerated panic” and investors should keep the economy’s inherent strength in mind while investing.
The Finance Minister further added that the government will continue to pursue policies to support growth amid global slowdown.
“It would be a part of prudent investment reaction that the inherent strengthen of Indian economy is kept in mind by investors rather than react disproportionately to what the global developments are,” Jaitley said. (ANI)
