New Delhi, Sep 18 Slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for managing headlines, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said sponsored events like ‘Howdy, Modi!’ in Houston won’t bring investors and the economic slowdown is a speed breaker in his government’s claims of working towards making a $5 trillion economy.
“Creating a media blitz by repeating $5 trillion everyday and managing headlines will not trigger economic reforms. Sponsored events in foreign countries do not bring investors. Investors have lost faith. Economic investment has lost ground,” tweeted Priyanka without taking the name of the ‘Howdy Modi!’ event.
“The BJP government is not accepting the truth. This economic slowdown is a speed breaker in the path of becoming an economic superpower. Without corrective measures, all the show-off is worthless,” she further tweeted.
Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal too questioned the logic of organising publicity extravaganzas outside the country and challenged PM to organise such events in the rural areas of the country and the people will tell him what they are facing.
