Failure to restore money supply has paralysed India’s economy leading to massive loss of jobs and closure of businesses on a daily basis.”“RBI, instead of playing the role of an independent monetary regulator and a key denominator of economic growth, has become a mere post office, following the diktats of the Modi government like a puppet,” the statement added.
