Yashwant Sinha

Indore, Sep 15 : Former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha termed the Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s reasoning behind decline in the automobile sector as “weird” and asked whether she can explain how the sales of trucks declined.Further saying that farmers condition should be improve for the betterment of the Indian economy .

“We should have grown at a rate of at least eight percent. the GDP growth has come down to five percent The missing three percent growth meant loss of Rs. 6 lakh crore in just one quarter, he claimed.

Speaking to media persons in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, the former finance minister said, “People in the government are making weird statements. These statements will not lead to betterment of economy. But they will definitely affect the government’s image.”

Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s stated that decline in the automobile sector is because of millennials using app-based cab services Ola and Uber instead of buying car.

To the reason given by the minister of Modi government for the decline in the sale of cars, Sinha questioned, “If companies like Ola and Uber caused a drop in passenger vehicle sales, then why there is a slowdown in sales of two-wheelers and trucks?”

Sinha even mocked the Piyush Goyal’s statement while defending the finance minister . “A Union minister (Piyush Goyal) is talking about Einstein’s law of gravity,” the former BJP leader said.

Piyush Goyal was defending the government against the allegations of the economic slowdown. He was trying to answer the question of how projected GDP growth rates don’t seem to align with the $5 trillion-dollar economy mission when he said something interesting — “Maths didn’t help Einstein discover gravity”.

“Bihar’s finance minister (Sushil Modi) said there is recession due to Sawan-Bhado (the rainy season).” the former BJP leader said.

Sinha also asked how can Sitharaman equate the economies of India and UAE and questioned the announcement to organize a mega-shopping festival in India on the lines of Dubai Shopping Festival to boost exports.

“The economies of UAE (United Arab Emirates) and India are different. India’s economy will progress only when farmers in areas like Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh progress,” he said.

Critical of the merger plan, he said”I am not opposed to merger. But it will not reduce their non-performing assets automatically, rather bank officials will get tied up in completing merger formalities instead of focusing on actual banking.”

Mumbai, May 27 : In a scathing attack on the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party, Maharashtra’s ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi on Wednesday demanded Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis to justify his Tuesday’s claims of the state getting huge financial help from the Centre to tackle the Covid-19 crisis.

“The Centre has yet to clear this state’s GST dues of over Rs 18,000 crore for 2019-2020…. other things Fadnavis has claimed have not been received, whatever has come is for ongoing schemes? Where is the money? From where it came and which account it has gone?” senior Shiv Sena leader and Transport Minister Anil Parab pointedly asked.

Nationalist Congress Party state president and Water Resources Minister Jayant Patil said from Fadnavis’ statements, doubts are raised whether he is a friend or enemy of Maharashtra.

“Instead of cooperating, he’s busy vilifying all the good work of the MVA government, the state BJP thought it fit to give money to the PM Care Fund but not the CM Relief Fund, he has no faith in the skills of the youth of our state and made misleading statements,” Patil said.

Congress state chief and Revenue Minister Balasaheb Thorat targeted Fadnavis saying rather than working with the government or using his good offices to get a good financial package from the Centre, the Opposition is busy trying to topple the MVA government.

The MVA leaders addressed a joint press conference on Wednesday, countered all issues raised by the BJP leader at his media briefing on Tuesday, and termed his statements as imaginary.

Aditi Singh Akhilesh congress raebareli

Lucknow, May 27 : Aditi Singh, the rebel Congress MLA from Rae Bareli, seems to be going the Jyotiraditya Scindia way.

Aditi Singh, on Wednesday, changed her Twitter profile, removing Indian National Congress from it.

It may be recalled that just before switching over to the BJP, Scindia had also dropped INC from his profile on social media.

Aditi Singh’s profile now reads – “MLA Rae Bareli Sadar, Uttar Pradesh. Masters in Management Studies, Duke University. Forever trying to be a practitioner of Ayurveda, Yoga and Plant Based Living.”

The MLA, since September last year, has been charting her own course-one that defies the Congress line.

She welcomed the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir at a time when the Congress was opposing the move. She then defied the party line to attend a special assembly session in UP in October.

Aditi Singh has been regularly praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath from time to time.

The Congress has already filed a petition seeking her disqualification from the membership of the state assembly for alleged anti-party activities. However, no action has yet been taken on the petition.

More recently, Aditi Singh slammed the Congress for sending buses for migrant workers and appreciated the work being done by the Yogi government for migrants.

Speculations are rife that Aditi Singh may soon join the BJP and is likely to be named as the party candidate from Rae Bareli in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
