Economic Disorder In India Had Sent The Currency Into A Coma
On Tuesday, the Former Finance Minister and former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha said that the economic turmoil in the country had sent the Indian rupee into a coma.
Speaking on the Rashtra Manch platform, formed early this year, Sinha said: “Narendra Modi, when he was the Gujarat Chief Minister, had said the Indian rupee was in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) when its value was Rs 60 against the American dollar. Now when the rupee is nearing Rs 75, what can be said? It is now in coma.”
Sinha, and BJP rebel from Patna Shatrughan Sinha, Samajwadi Party legislator Ghanshyam Tiwari, former Gujarat Chief Minister Sureshchandra Mehta and Minister Praveensinh Jadeja had gathered here to address a public gathering.
Speaking to reporters earlier, Sinha said: “The current situation is such that a citizen cannot express himself against the government. If he or she does, they are dubbed anti- nationals. Which is entirely against the fundamentals of democracy.
Referring to the Rafale defence deal, he said: “We (Myself, Prashant Bhushan and Arun Shourie) have filed a petition to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) regarding the Rafale deal, which is a huge scam by the NDA government.
“And only one person is responsible for it, Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Sinha asserted.
