Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took a sharp dig at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led NDA government on Tuesday over the economic slowdown.
Taking to Twitter, she said: “Repeating a lie hundred times doesn’t make it true. BJP government should accept that the economic crisis faced right now is historical and they should look for options out.
“The state of a slowdown is for all to see. For how long the government will manage headlines?”
This is not the first time a senior Congress leader has attacked the BJP government on the economic front.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called the current slowdown a “man-made crisis”, blaming it on the demonetization and “hasty implementation” of the GST.
Recently, India’s GDP growth in the first quarter slowed to 5 per cent — the lowest in 25 quarters or in six years.
