I am giving you three massive examples right now—demonetization, wrong GST and lockdown.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led, six-year-old Union government has attacked the informal economy and the three key examples of it were demonetization, poor implementation of the goods, and services tax (GST), and the nationwide lockdown Earlier, this year to control the spread of coronavirus, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Monday.
Gandhi’s comments, made in a brief video that is part of a larger series on his views on the state of the Indian economy, comes ahead of the monsoon session of Parliament expected to begin in nearly a fortnight. The Congress, along with other opposition parties, are going to raise the issue of a slowdown of economy, its handling of the covid-19 pandemic, including the lockdown, and the recent controversy over the payment of GST compensation.
The BJP government has been attacking the informal sector over the past six years. I am giving you three massive examples right now—demonetization, wrong GST and lockdown. Do not think the lockdown was unplanned. Don’t think it was done at the last minute. The aim of these three decisions was to destroy our informal sector, Gandhi said in the nearly four-minute-long video released on his official social media channels on Monday.
