BJP slams Rahul Gandhi, Raghuram Rajan over GDP figures, ‘sponsored expert's predictions…’
BJP slams Rahul Gandhi for spreading hate and pessimism, citing India's 7.2% annual economic growth to counter his criticisms and accusing him of defaming India's progress.
The BJP on Thursday slammed senior congress leader Rahul Gandhi for spreading pessimism, hate, and distrust in India's development journey and cited the country's robust 7.2% annual economic growth to counter his criticisms.
"Every prediction of the sponsored expert has proved wrong," Shankar claimed.
India has achieved a record export of USD 770 billion while its inflation at 4.7 per cent is the lowest among large economies, Prasad said
"He is touring abroad claiming that he has come with a message of love... He is in fact spreading a market of hate, distrust and pessimism against India's development journey," the BJP leader said, accusing him of indulging in "open public display of lack of faith in Indian's development story".
Gandhi has made it his goal to defame India's talent and progress, the former law minister added.
He also cited the recent Morgan Stanley report, which has spoken favourably of the Indian economy's changes in the last 10 years, to hit out at Gandhi.
The Congress leader is unable to accept the truth of Modi being India's prime minister and his overall popularity, he said.
India's economy grew by 6.1 per cent in the January-March quarter of 2022-23, pushing the annual growth rate to 7.2 per cent on account of better performance by agriculture, manufacturing, mining and construction sectors, official data showed on Wednesday.
