Congress leader and former party president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked the central government over the GDP reduction reports. He also targeted the rising unemployment levels and the COVID-19 situation in the country. The border issue between India and China was also on his list.

Hitting out at the BJP-led central government, Gandhi called the failures ‘Modi-made’ and tweeted a list of six issues that, according to him, were plaguing the country.

On Tuesday, he also shared a video where he spoke about the centre’s inability to manage the failing economy.
As per GDP data released on Monday, India has entered the recession phase, with a collapse of 23.9% of gross domestic product in the second quarter. The prime reason for this is also the pandemic which resulted in a series of lockdowns that stalled economic activities in the country.

The National Statistical Office (NSO) stated that the GDP contraction in the quarter April-June was the largest slump on record since India started reporting quarterly data in 1996.

Earlier, Congress leader P Chidambaram had also criticised the Modi government over the GDP drop, saying that the Centre paid no heed to earlier warnings and now the country is paying the price for it.

He also hinted at Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s statement during a GST Council meeting last week, wherein she said, “…This year we are facing an extraordinary situation. We are facing an act of God where we may even see a contraction”. In this regard, he refuted by saying that it wasn’t an act of God, but man-made.

The on-going COVID issue has been linked to the economic crisis India faces. At present, Unlock 4.0 is in force.
India is the third worst-affected country because of coronavirus. On an average nearly 70,000 cases are being reported.
