Should the state be managing businesses???

It is often argued that the state shall refrain from indulging in 'business',i.e., profit making.
That in a market economy, the state shall leave profit making on private persons and shall concern itself with the welfare of its sbjects.

That the state shall not operate any corporation [PSUs in India].

Kindly justify, or give counter points.
