Slamming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for all-round failure on the economic front, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said here on Sunday that under the former UPA Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the Indian economy was very strong and flourished, earning the admiration of the whole world.
“Under the UPA government, the Indian economy was very strong and could challenge even the US economy. The whole world praised our economic management. Now, under the present government, what is the status,” Gandhi asked during his election rallies here on Saturday evening.
He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi ridiculed his predecessor Manmohan Singh, mocked the Congress everywhere and even alleged that India achieved nothing in 70 years.
