Congress president Rahul Gandhi on January 6 attacked the Centre for the economic slump in the country and described “GDP” as the “Gross Divisive Politics” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Gandhi targeted both Modi and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for the slowdown in investment, bank credit growth, job creation and agricultural growth.
FM Jaitley’s genius combines with Mr Modi’s Gross Divisive Politics (GDP) to give India:
New Investments: 13 year
Bank credit Growth: 63 year
Job creation: 8 year
Agriculture GVA growth: 1.7%
Fiscal Deficit: 8 year
Stalled Projects https://t.co/bZdPnREYiE
