Attacking the Narendra Modi government for the decline in the GDP growth, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today alleged that the central government was manufacturing other issues to deflect the country’s attention from its failures.
“Falling GDP.Rising unemployment. Every other issue is manufactured to distract us from this fundamental failure,” he tweeted.
In his tweet, Rahul Gandhi tagged a news report which said that India had lost its tag of being the fastest growing economy in the world after the fourth quarter GDP growth declined to 6.1 per cent.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had dubbed the decision to demonetise high currency notes as “legalised plunder and a monumental failure” and predicted a 2 per cent 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.
