BJP under delusion that world is praising reforms in India: Congress
Hitting back at Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for saying that the world is lauding economic reforms in India, the Congress party on Monday said the BJP is under a delusion.
Congress leader Ranjeet Ranjan told news agency ANI that the BJP must not ignore what former finance minister Yashwant Sinha has said. Ranjan also slammed the Centre over the issue of not being able to generate enough employment opportunities for the youth.
"They are in a delusion that the world is impressed with India's structural reforms," she told ANI.
She also said that Jaitley was an advocate and not a finance minister.
Jaitley had on Saturday said that countries across the world are lauding India initiating major structural reforms like the demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Jaitley, who was in the US last week, also said that the government was able to convince the public about allowing FDI into defence sector.
