Welcoming the Assembly election results in the five States, industry bodies on Tuesday hoped the UPA government at the Centre would take a lesson and respond positively to fulfil the aspirations of the people.

Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India president Rajkumar Dhoot said the elections reflected the emergence of new voters' expectations and hopes. He hoped the Centre would respond positively and constructively to people's aspirations and push ahead with second generation reforms speedily.

Attributing the rising aspirations of the people to globalisation, Mr. Dhoot maintained that political parties which provided opportunities for education and jobs with clean administration would have an edge over others.

Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry president R.V. Kanoria too said that keeping in mind the results it was clear that people wanted progress and development and it was imperative for the Centre to be bold in initiating reforms.

Confederation of Indian Industry director-general Chandrajit Banerjee felt the results would not impact the Central government and said he was looking forward to an investment and growth oriented Union budget. Mr. Banerjee hoped the new government to be formed by the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh would take bold steps to develop infrastructure and industrial clusters and ensure stability in the economic situation.
