Apologists in PM’s Economic Advisory Council: Anand Sharma – The Economic Times–29.09.2017

Congress on Thursday stepped up its attack on the government over the handling of the economy, saying it is fast slipping into deep recession and demanded to know the remedial steps being contemplated.

Former commerce and industry minister Anand Sharma also questioned the credibility of the newly appointed Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister.

“The appointment of PM’s Economic Advisory Council after 40 months is purely cosmetic and a farcical exercise. The council, comprising apologists and cheerleaders who applauded and endorsed all wrong decisions of prime minister, lacks credibility and shall not serve any purpose.”

Accusing PM Modi and finance minister Arun Jaitley of remaining in denial and of being clueless about addressing the crisis of “their own making”, Sharma said: “PM Modi is singularly responsible for inflicting grave damage on the economy by his reckless decisions, including demonetisation and hasty imposition of a flawed GST. The disastrous implementation has hurt the industry.”
