NEW DELHI: Amid coronavirus scare, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said that the Indian economy will be destroyed if strong action is not taken.
He spoke to reporters and said that it is like a tsunami coming.
“The water is going to come and I have been warning the government … They are fooling about, they are not clear about what they have to do. India should be preparing itself not just for Covid-19 but for the economic devastation that is coming,” he said.
“I am saying it again and again… I am sorry to say our people are going to go through unimaginable pain in the next six months,” he added.
Just yesterday, Gandhi had asked in Lok Sabha the names of top 50 wilful defaulters.
The question was listed at serial number 305.
Rahul Gandhi asked that the government give the names and what steps the government has taken to recover loans from the defaulters.
“Prime Minister says that those who have taken loans from the banks and have fled from the country will be brought back to India. I asked for the names of those who have defaulted, but I did not get any reply. My question is who are the 50 top wilful defaulters,” Rahul said in the Lok Sabha.
Minister of State for Finance rose to reply to Rahul Gandhi’s question, but the Congress leaders objected and demanded answers from the Finance Minister. To this, the Speaker said that the MoS can reply to the question.
The MoS finance Anurag Thakur said that the names are on the site and most of the advances have been given during the UPA government
Gandhi has also broken his silence over Jyotiraditya Scindia joining the BJP after leaving Congress. He said that his house was always open for him.
