India’s economic slowdown pronounced, BJP has no answers: Rahul Gandhi

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the BJP government on Monday over the economy, saying Indians’ per capita incomes are falling but the government is suffering from “political bankruptcy” and has no answers.

He fears that the economic situation will only get worse in the coming times.

“Indian families are suffering from the onslaught of inflation and job losses, earning less per capita than two years ago,” Gandhi said in a Facebook post.

He said per capita income at constant prices fell to Rs 91,481 from Rs 94,270.

“India’s economic slowdown is pronounced and the BJP government, suffering from political bankruptcy, has no answers,” he also said.

“The economic situation will only get worse,” the congress leader said in his post.

Congress has attacked the government over rising prices for food and petroleum products.
