Immediately after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at World Economic Forum Summit in Davos, Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at the PM by asking him to explain why only 1 per cent of India’s population gets 73 per cent of its wealth.
“Dear PM, Welcome to Switzerland! Please tell DAVOS why 1% of India’s population gets 73% of its wealth?” tweeted Rahul Gandhi.

Earlier, addressing the plenary session of WEF 2018, PM Modi asked the world leaders and top CEOs to invest in India and assured them that the government and the people of the country will welcome them with open hands and hearts.
PM Modi said that 125 crore Indians are capable of creating a $5 trillion economy by 2025.
“If you want wellness with wealth, come to India. If you want wholeness with health, come to India. If you want peace with prosperity, come to India. You will always be welcome in India,” he added.
