Expressing confidence that the country will be a leading nation in the next 15 years, deputy prime minister LK Advani has said to ensure prosperity, the country must tap the tourism potential of islands like the Andamans and the Lakshadweep.

What we have not attained in the last 55 years will be achieved in the next 15 years. India is and will be a leading nation, there is no doubt, he said. Addressing a gathering of students here on Sunday, he recalled his recent visit to the Maldives saying it had the highest per capita income among the Saarc countries.
