New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter today to announce a video series on “how the Modi government has destroyed the Indian economy” with a short clip where he states how demonetisation, “flawed GST” and the coronavirus lockdown have hit the national economy.

The first video will be out at 10am on Monday on all his social media channels, Mr Gandhi wrote to his 15.8 million followers on Twitter.

In a short video that accompanied the tweet, the Congress MP said the BJP government has attacked the unorganised workforce in India.

“I will give you three big examples right now – demonetisation, flawed GST and the lockdown,” Mr Gandhi, 50, said in the 26-second clip.

Rahul Gandhi has been critical of the central government’s handling of the economy. The centre said Thursday the coronavirus pandemic has hurt goods and services (GST) collection and the shortfall is ₹ 2.35 lakh crore for fiscal 2021. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman called the pandemic “an act of God” and an unforeseen factor that affected GST collections which was met with a sharp retort from the former Congress chief.

Rahul Gandhi hit out at Ms Sitharaman’s remarks on Friday reiterating the same points by saying the economy has been “destroyed” by three actions of the government– demonetisation, “flawed” GST and a “failed” lockdown.

Days ago, the Wayanad MP had also said “distractions through media won’t help the poor” as he took a shot at the centre about the Reserve Bank of India’s warning on economic contraction.

He had made a few suggestions as well.

“Government needs to: Spend more, not lend more. Give money to the poor, not tax cuts to industrialists. Restart economy by consumption,” Mr Gandhi had tweeted in yet another relentless attack on the government over the handling of the coronavirus pandemic which has badly affected the economy.

harish salve Caroline Brossard

New Delhi, Oct 25 : The year 2020, has been blissful for one of the top legal eagles in the country. Senior advocate Harish Salve, who was Indias former Solicitor General, became Queens C ounsel (QC) in England and Wales in January, a title which is recognized all over the world, and also recently revealed his wedding plans to a London-based artist, slated next week.

65-year-old Salve, has been associated with many high-profile cases: Kulbhushan Jadav, Vodafone, Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, ITC hotels etc., and also one of the prominent lawyers who are actively before several courts in India through video conferencing. He divorced his wife for 38 years Meenakshi Salve in June this year.

Salve has adapted to being a Londoner. He lives in North London. On October 28, he will marry Caroline Brossard in a church wedding. According to reports, Salve and Brossard have been seeing each other for close to a year, after they first met at an art event. Brossard is an artist, who grew up in the UK and has an 18-year old daughter of her own. Elaborating the factors, which solidified the couple’s connection, Salve had said they share a passion for theatre and classical music, along with art.

Salve had said that wedding will be a very small affair, as only 15 are allowed to gather in London. It is learnt that other than Brossard’s family, Salve’s guests include Camellia and Namita Panjabi, renowned Indian restaurateurs in the UK.

Amid the lockdown, Salve, was also one of the busiest lawyers, as he appeared in some high-profile cases in the Supreme Court — represented Facebook Vice President in a case against Delhi Legislative Assembly, journalist Arnab Goswami against Maharashtra government and Indian Banks Association in a matter regarding the loan moratorium – and had expressed that he is very comfortable in arguing in matters, through video conferencing, from London.

Salve was raised in Nagpur. His father NKP Salve was a chartered accountant and he was associated with the Congress party. Harish Salve did his LL.B. from Nagpur University. He was designated as senior advocate by the Delhi High Court in 1992. He was the Solicitor General for India from 1999-2002. Salve was called to Blackstone Chambers in 2013. And, in the same year, Salve was appointed to the English Bar.
