Sachindra Chaudhuri was the finance minister who presented the budget of 1966-1967. His famous quote was “With the best will in the world and the utmost effort we are capable of, we still cannot dispense with foreign aid in the near future. We in India have always recognized that foreign aid can at best supplement our own efforts to raise both internal and external resources. No self-respecting nation can ever look upon external assistance as a substitute for reasonable effort [from] its own part or as a continuing feature of its economy.”
