Insight Bureau: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi who chaired a meeting of Congress General Secretaries in New Delhi, termed GST and Demonetisation as “twin torpedoes” that jolted the Indian Economy.
GST (which was good, butt implemented in a poor manner) had unleashed a “tsunami of tax terrorism” in the country, he reiterated. Demonetisation was a disaster, as it was carried out without a plan or vision, he added.
Rahul criticised PM Modi for deciding to celebrate November 8 as ‘Anti-Black Money Day’, saying it would be a big joke for the nation. “The PM is not connected to the ground reality, it seems,” he said.
Congress is in the process of forming a strategy to corner the Modi Government in Gujarat polls on the issues of GST and Demonetisation. Protests and candlelight vigils would be held in each state capital on November 8 to mark protest against “DeMo Disaster”, says Congress.
