New Delhi: Mounting a fresh attack on the Narendra Modi government, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said the “so-called kamdar” had destroyed India’s economy with no jobs and no solutions to rising unemployment. Taking it to micro-blogging site Twitter, he said, “Uninformed allegations make for good sound bytes, the only evidence of Modiji’s frustration. The so-called ‘Kamdar’ has destroyed India’s economy: No jobs and no solutions in sight. The biggest NPA in this country is this government.”
Sibal’s comment comes in continuation of the war of words between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress, as Modi on Saturday lashed out at the UPA government for generating bad loans and leaving behind a legacy of non-performing assets.
The Congress leader said the ruling BJP was the biggest non-performing asset (NPA) of the country.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hit out at Congress party saying, “Just a few days after our government came to power, we realised that the Congress had left the nation’s economy on a landmine.” He made this remark during the launch of India Post Payments Bank (IPPB), country’s largest payments bank in New Delhi.
Referring to the loan defaulters, he assured,”Swift action is being taken against 12 biggest defaulters who were given loans before 2014. I want to assure the country that none of these big loans was given by our government.”
