Rahul Gandhi mocks Arun Jaitley's claims on economy, says 'aapki dava mein dum nahi'

New Delhi :  

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday mocked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for his claims on the economy. He said, the country’s economy is in the ICU and “Dr Jaitley’s” medicines were ineffective.

Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Dr Jaitley, the economy is in ICU due to Demonetisation and GST.”

“Aap kehtey hai aap kissi sey kum nahi/ magar aapki dava mein dum nahi (You claim you are no less than the others, but your medicines have no strength),” he added with a doggerel.

The Tweet came a day after Jaitley retorted to Gandhi’s barb on the new tax regime, which the Congress leader had likened to a Bollywood villain.

Rahul Gandhi takes dig at BJP Govt, says GST is Modi's "Gabbar Singh Tax" 

“Those who are used to the 2G scam and the coal scam will naturally have objections to a legitimate tax programme,” Jaitley said.

Gandhi, while campaigning in Gujarat, had termed the GST as PM Modi’s “Gabbar Singh Tax”, recalling the villain from the 1975 blockbuster ‘Sholay’.

He had also attacked the government on GST by referencing the Bollywood character’s dialogue to say it was a tax that coveted people’s earnings.
