Congress leader Rahul Gandhi accused the government of mismanaging the country's economy on Thursday, saying the country is at a "critical crossroads" and that the Congress, as a major opposition party, has a moral obligation to oppose forces that undermine India's fundamental notion."The Modi Government has clearly mishandled the economy. And, what this country has built over the last 70 years, is being given away to select few friends of Modi-ji",
Mr. Gandhi said, joining a function organised virtually on the occasion of inauguration of the District Congress Committee office in this north Kerala district."We didn't privatise strategic industries: for example, Railways which is the backbone of India. Congress party must oppose this fire sale of our crown jewels at every level," Mr Gandhi said, criticising the Centre's 6 lakh crore National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP),
Which involved integrating private businesses in infrastructure sectors ranging from passenger trains and railway stations to airports, roadways, and stadiums in order to unlock value.Mr. Gandhi attacked the administration for growing fuel prices, saying the government had come up with a new notion of GDP, in which a gain in GDP equals a rise in gas, diesel, and petrol prices."While international prices for crude and gas have gone down since 2014, there has been a huge increase in prices in GDP in the last 7 years. ₹ 23 lakh crore has been earned by increasing prices of GDP in the last seven years.
Where has this money gone?" he asked.While farmers, labourers, small traders, and the informal sector, MSMEs, contract employees, the salaried class, and honest industrialists are being demonetised, four-five of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's buddies are being monetised, according to the Congress leader."We have to fight these forces...," he stated at the event, which was also attended by AICC general secretary K.C. Venugopal, KPCC president K. Sudhakaran, and State Assembly Leader V.D. Satheesan. Mr. Gandhi was joined at the virtual occasion by senior leaders Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala.
