Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh today said that the country's growth rate might continue to languish below six percent this year but expressed the need to return to a higher growth path. A growth rate below 6 percent for the third quarter in a row is damaging for a country that aspires to near double-digit expansion to provide jobs for its burgeoning population. Addressing the 11th Parvasi Bhartiya Divas in Kochi, Singh said that the Indian economy was not immune to the global financial crisis.
