‘Howdy economy doin, Mr. Modi,’ Rahul asks ahead of Prime Minister’s Houston event
New Delhi, Sep 18: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the state of the economy, saying it seems that it is not too good.
He took to Twitter to say this ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the United States, where he will address Indian Americans at a function "Howdy Modi". US President Donald Trump will join Modi at the event in Houston.
""Howdy economy doin', Mr. Modi? Ain't too good it seems," he said on Twitter, using the hashtag "HowdyEconomy".
His sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also attacked the government, saying the confidence of investors is "shaken" but the Modi government is refusing to acknowledge the truth.
"India's economy cannot be fixed with razzle-dazzle, saying '5 trillion, 5 trillion' every day or by doing media and headline management. Investors do not come by sponsoring events abroad," Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted in Hindi, attaching a link to the same report.
The Congress has been attacking the Modi government over the slowdown in the economy and has criticised it for its economic policies.
