Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Wednesday hit out at the BJP-led NDA government over the economic slowdown in the country, saying it was due to the result of the wrong policies of the government.
He also slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for interfering in India’s internal issues and asked him to look into his own country.
Speaking to reporters, Baghel said, “The economic slowdown across the country is due to the wrong policies of the government.”
Congress has been accusing the government for the last several months over the economic crisis in the country. Several sectors have been hit in the last few months due to the slowdown.
When asked, if he has prepared some plans for Chhattisgarh to deal with the economic slowdown, the Chief Minister asserted, “There is no effect of economic slowdown in Chhattisgarh.”
On his meeting with Union Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, he said, “I met him over the issue of buying of the rice from the state. I have asked the central government to increase the buying of 32 lakh metric tonne of rice from Chhattisgarh.
“He has assured that the government will look at our stage government’s request,” Baghel said.
The Chief Minister to a question over Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan quoting Congress to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi government’s decision, said, “Imran Khan has no right to speak on India’s internal issues. He should look after his own country’s issues.
“We can differ or support on several issues, debate, question and demand for answers from our Prime Minister. But when he is outside the country representing India, Congress will always support him on every step,” he said.
