Sisodia criticises Modi, says PM has put 'facts wrongly' on GDP

New Delhi:

Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia on Thursday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the latter has put “facts wrongly” on the GDP slowdown.

Sisodia likened Modi to a surgeon who claims that the operation has been successful even when the patient is on the verge of death.

He said the Prime Minister presented the “facts wrongly” when he spoke on the GDP slowdown during an event at Vigyan Bhavan.

He was referring to the PM’s address to a gathering of Company Secretaries where he had said that his government will continue reforms and not hesitate to take decisions to reverse the GDP slowdown witnessed in the last two quarters.

Taking a jibe at Modi, Sisodia said, “If I summarise the PM’s are patting yourself on the back like a doctor who says the operation has been successful but the patient is dying.”

The PM tried to present a picture of the economy before the nation which was more imaginary than factual, he told reporters.
