New Delhi, Oct 26: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday hit out at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley saying the implementation of the GST regime and demonetisation has landed country’s economy in the “ICU”.
He said in tweet “Dear Jaitley, due to demonetisation and GST, economy is in ICU (Intensive Care Unit). You say that you are no less from anyone but even your medicines are not effective” (डॉ जेटली, नोटबंदी और GST से अर्थव्यवस्था ICU में है। आप कहते हैं आप किसी से कम नहीं, मगर आपकी दवा में दम नहीं).

Gandhi’s remark comes two days after the Modi government said the “Indian economy is on a strong wicket”.
The Congress leader yesterday Wednesday mocked the government in star wars style over its growth forecast. He posted PIB’s tweet, which said that real GDP growth average was 7.5 per cent in the last three years. and said “Dear Jaitley, May the Farce be with you”.
During his Gujarat visit, Gandhi termed the Goods and Services tax as ” Gabbar Singh Tax”.
