Congress on Friday termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as synonyms of economic mismanagement. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said, “The truth is people are tired of Modinomics and Jaitleynomics, because they have wrecked India’s economy. Now the economic mismanagement has become synonymous with Prime Minister Modi and Jaitley.”
He reacted to the finance minister’s remarks on BJP veteran Yashwant Sinha, Surjewala said, “What the Finance Minister said today was merely, arrogantly mocking at his predecessor Yaswant Sinha, who is the senior party leader of the BJP.”
On Jaitley, the Congress leader said, “He did not utter a single word about jobs, about GDP growth that is reducing from 9 to 5.7 per cent, about falling exports, about falling investments, credit growth, about revenue being collected from petrol taxes.”
“The entire country hopes that the Prime Minister and the Union Finance Minister would provide a meaningful way out of the economic crisis and economic downturn that is hurting India’s economy on account of their mismanagement,” he added.
In the meantime, Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken expressed contentment over Sinha’s remarks on the state of economy.
