After criticising the government’s handling of the economy and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) transferring it a surplus of Rs 1.76 lakh crore, the Congress on Thursday again attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a series of sarcastic tweets over the fall of the rupee and slowdown in growth.
“India Ratings and Research (Fitch Group) has revised India’s FY20 GDP growth to 6.7% (six-year low) from its earlier forecast of 7.3%. It expects FY20 to be third consecutive year of subdued growth,” according to a Congress party tweet.
“After looting the RBI, the least this govt can do is inform taxpayers how their money will be used. Unfortunately asking BJP to be transparent is like asking BJP to fix the economy – Impossible. #UnfitGovtUnfitEconomy,” said another tweet on the party’s social media handle. The reference was to the ‘Fit India’ movement he launched on Thursday on National Sports Day, as announced on his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio programme to spread awareness on fitness and staying healthy.
