Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday launched a scathing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said that the economy has derailed under the Modi regime and there is no hope for its revival. He also warned the government that the train of recession is coming at full throttle.
“Mr PM, The economy has derailed and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. If your incompetent FM is telling you there is light, trust me it’s the train of recession coming at full throttle,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday claimed that the "callous attitude" of the Narendra Modi government in rolling out GST and demonetisation has sent the Indian economy is in tailspin and brought it to the brink of meltdown.
"Demonetisation and GST rollout are perfect examples of ineptitude and lack of depth in the Modi Government. Their callous attitude has sent the Indian economy in tailspin and has brought it to the brink of a meltdown," he said on Twitter.
He tagged a news report quoting the Comptroller and Auditor General, in its first ever audit of the Goods and Services Tax, that the government had failed to try out the system before its rollout, leading to inadequate compliance mechanisms, and lower tax revenues.
