Economy in ICU due to GST, demonetisation: Rahul Gandhi

By Vikas

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday fired a fresh salvo at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over the state of Indian economy. Gandhi took to Twitter and said that the demonetisation and the GST have pushed the economy into the ICU (Intensive Care Unit).

He also said that Jaitley's claims that economy is in good shape were futile.

Earlier on Tuesday, Jaitley had stated that India has been the fastest growing major economy for the last three years and that the attempts were on to maintain high growth rate in coming years.

Rahul had then mocked Jaitley's statement and tweeted, "'Dear Mr. Jaitley, May the Farce be with you.''

Jaitley presented an optimistic picture of the state of the economy, insisting that the Indian economy remains on a strong wicket with sound macro-economic fundamentals.

During a rally in Gujarat earlier this week, Gandhi had called the GST as "Gabbar Singh Tax".

The Congress vice-president has been relenlessly attacking the government over economic initiatives and the GDP growth rate. The opposition parties are also set to observe "black day" on November 8, the day demonetisation was announced last year.
