New Delhi, Nov 18 As the winter session of Parliament begins, senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Monday urged his party colleagues to ‘expose’ the ‘utter mismanagement’ of the economy by the Narendra Modi government.
“When Parliament opens today, @INCIndia must lead the Opposition to expose the utter mismanagement of the economy,” the former Finance Minister said.
“Which aspect of the economy is doing well? Not one,” he added in a tweet.
Chidambaram would miss the 250th session of the Parliament as he is currently in judicial custody for his alleged role in the high-profile INX Media case.
Chidambaram has been critical of Modi government’s economic policies and has been flagging issues on regular intervals.
Speaking with reporters on Saturday after a government-convened all-party meeting, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad had said that Chidambaram should be allowed to attend Parliament.
Former Prime Minister and noted economist Manmohan Singh would, however, be in the Rajya Sabha to lead the attack on the government on behalf of the main opposition Congress Party.
All India Congress Committee (AICC) office-bearers including party secretaries, State Congress Committee presidents and Congress Legislative Party leaders on Saturday participated in a meeting being held at Congress war room in New Delhi where the leaders discussed about the economic crisis created by the Modi government.
