Modi govt trying to divert attention from GDP failure says Rahul


On Thursday, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi criticised the government for the decline in GDP growth and said it was manufacturing other issues to deflect the country’s attention from its failures.

Falling GDP. Rising unemployment. Each and every other issue is made to occupy us from this basic disappointment,” he tweeted.

He additionally labeled a news report that said the nation had lost its tag of being the quickest developing economy on the planet after the final quarter GDP development declined to 6.1 percent.

Previous Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had named the choice to demonetise high cash notes as “legitimized loot and a fantastic disappointment” and anticipated a 2 percent fall in GDP.

Later, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram had also criticised the note ban and said it would lead to a fall in GDP growth.
