New Delhi, Jan 10: Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Wednesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the slowdown in GDP saying the government’s “gross economic mismanagement” decelerated India’s growth story.
Surjewala said in a tweet “(The) government’s gross economic mismanagement, which has decelerated the India story, speaks volumes. GDP growth slows to four year low”.
Taking a dig at Modi Congress leader stated ” PM had not even listened to the sound counsel of economists because “innate wisdom of Modinomics needs no counsel”.
Gross Value Added (GVA),a true sub-measure of economic activity, has experienced a steep fall too.

In addition to this, Surjewala asserted that Gross Value Added (GVA), a true sub-measure of economic activity, “has experienced a steep fall too”.
Referring to a man who reportedly committed suicide at the BJP office in Dehradun and blamed note ban and GST for the extreme step, Surjewala said the businessman was “strangulated by the Modi-made disaster of demonetisation and Gabbar Singh Tax”.
He also said the promise to farmers of over 50 per cent increase in minimum support price had turned out to be “the biggest hoax” that “forced to throw their produce on road”.
