“Today is International Day of Democracy. It anguishes me that our country is currently going through a ‘Super Emergency’.

Earlier on Friday, while speaking to reporters at state secretariat, Banerjee had lambasted the Modi government saying, “The worsening of the country’s economy had started with demonetisation in 2016 and then the implementation of the GST.”
“This (daily fuel price hike and devaluation of the rupee) is a disaster and mismanagement of the country’s economy. The price of rupee is falling everyday. Prices of petroleum products are increasing every day. There is no value of life of common people. We are unable to understand where it will reach,” the TMC supremo, a strongest critic of the BJP had said.
