Gujarat: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi hit out at the Narendra Modi government on Tuesday for taking decisions like note ban and the Goods and Services Tax (GST) roll-out “without listening to anybody” which “affected the backbone” of the country’s economy.
“This is the big difference between the Congress’s ideology and the BJP’s ideology. The Congress listens to everyone and then implements a big decision. This government did not listen to anybody and implemented the GST and demonetisation, which affected the backbone of country’s economy,” Gandhi said.
He was interacting with small and medium entrepreneurs, teachers and doctors at Hemu Gandhavi Auditorium.”We may not have good speakers, but we have the quality of listening to people…learning about their problems, we pay attention to everyone’s suggestion and then decide to implement such big decisions. This government didn’t do that and implemented the GST and demonetisation,” the Congress leader said.
Modi’s decision of scrapping high-denomination currency notes shocked even the “world’s best economists” including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said.
