NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday stepped up his attack on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, saying that the country is without a Finance Minister and the national economy is on the brink of collapse.
Attacking the Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, who has not been very active due to his kidney ailment and keeps writing blogs of Facebook on issues of national importance, Rahul Gandhi said, ”The FM is locked in a room,” adding that it was a breaking news on the micro-blogging site.
The Congress president also attacked the Prime Minister and said that the man who took the demonetisation decision was ”fast asleep”.
Accusing the incumbent BJP regime of not doing enough for bringing the national economy on track, the Gandhi scion said that ”the BJP national treasurer was actually running the economy”.
Rahul Gandhi, who recently turned 48, also blamed the BJP’s parent body – the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) – for the current financial mess in the country, saying that ”the invisible hands of the RSS has steered the economy onto the rocks.”
The Congress leader took to Twitter to share his observation about the present economic situation.
”Ex ? FM is locked in his room, breaking news on FaceBook.
BJP Treasurer has the keys to the Indian Economy.
The brightest flee the sinking ship, as the “invisible hand” of the RSS steers it onto the rocks.
Meanwhile, Captain DeMo is fast asleep.
