New Delhi:

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi took a jibe at Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman over the issue of onion prices, saying no one asked her what she eats, but people wanted to know why the economy was struggling. “Nobody is asking you whether you eat onions. You are the finance minister and we are asking why the economy is struggling. Even if you ask the poorest person you will get a sensible response,” Gandhi said at a leadership meet of the Congress in Wayanad.

The Wayanad MP alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had destroyed India’s greatest strength, its economy.

“We believe in the voice of our people but Narendra Modi believes in his own. He did not ask any shopkeeper about demonetisation, he did not ask farmers or anyone about it. He destroyed Indias greatest strength, its economy. He did the same with GST. Now you look at how ridiculous the situation is?” Gandhi asked.

The Congress leader also said his party will not disrespect Indians by imposing terms on them.

“We don’t believe in thrashing and killing our people. That’s what we are fighting at a national level,” the Wayanad MP said.

Gandhi said he was bringing pressure on the state and the Centre for compensation and rehabilitation of victims of the floods in the state.

Speaking at a meeting at Nilambur, Gandhi referred to the death of a student following snake bite in Wayanad and said Kerala had a reputation of having the best education in the country and the incident only showed facilities need to be improved.
