Former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh today criticised the NDA government over the current economic situation in the country saying the state of the economy is worrying.
He said, the last quarter’s GDP growth rate of five per cent signals that India is in the midst of a prolonged slowdown.
In a statement, Dr. Singh said, the country’s youth, farmers and farmworkers, entrepreneurs and the marginalized sections deserve better.
Meanwhile, BJP has hit back at Dr. Singh alleging that the country’s economy is still facing difficulties due to his government’s wrong policies.
party spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said, the economic situation across the world is not good but India is in a better position as compared to other countries on economic front. He said, Narendra Modi government has taken several measures to boost the economy.
