NEW DELHI — Two days after the former prime minister and known economist Dr Manmohan Singh was appointed to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance by Vice President and Upper House Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu, Goa Congress chief lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his failure on the economic front.
Goa Congress president Girish Chodankar has reportedly said on Thursday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to revive economy and is now banking on the expertise of former Prime Minister and Rajya Sabha MP Manmohan Singh to help government to put on track country’s failing economy.
“Right now it is difficult to revive economy and world economists have already expressed concerns about where the Indian economy is heading. It looks like Prime Minister Modi has given up. That is why they have roped in Manmohan Singh,” the Goa Congress president said, while addressing a press conference in Panaji, reports IANS.
Narendra Modi does not follow anybody’s advice. Even demonetisation was done without taking the Reserve Bank of India into confidence, Congress leader said.
“If we have such a PM who ignores the advice of experts and pushes his own agenda as far as the economy is concerned, then no one can prevent the economy from sinking,” Chodankar added.
