Economy Crisis in India: BJP hits out at Manmohan Singh, says he was a puppet
New Delhi : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday slammed former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying that India failed to achieve the desired growth during his tenure because he was acting like a puppet to some people.
The reaction from BJP came a day after Manmohan Singh said that Narendra Modi government is responsible for "all-round mismanagement". He said if the economy is not revived of man-made blunders of demonetization.
"He [Singh] is an economist but people behind the scenes used him as a puppet to impose their laws and promote corruption and nepotism. What kind of injustice it did to the Indian economy, we all know," said BJP spokesman Sambit Patra.
"The world economy is facing a slowdown, but we can say with happiness that the Indian economy is doing well... because of strong base and fundamentals," he said.
