New Delhi: Despite perceptions in some quarters outside that India is losing its momentum of growth achieved in the past decade, there is no need to worry, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Wednesday.

“There is a perception in some quarters outside India that the country is losing its momentum of the past decade,” he said while addressing the inaugural ceremony of the 12th Pravasi Bhartiya Divas, the annual gathering of the Indian diaspora, here.

“I want to assure you that there is no reason to despair about our present or worry about our future,” he said.

He called upon Indians abroad “to remain engaged in the future of this country with confidence and optimism”.
