Hailing his government's budget, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday slammed those who doubt India's capacity to achieve the target of USD 5 trillion in five years as "professional pessimists" and said it can be achieved with determination. "We are very confident about achieving the goal of USD 5 trillion economy is the next five years but there are some people who raise questions on it. They ask what is the need of this and why it is being done.
