Country suffered greatest ever setback on economic front under Modi regime: Kushwaha

Country suffered greatest ever setback on economic front under Modi regime: Kushwaha

Patna, Nov 13 (UNI) RLSP president and former union minister Upendra Kushwaha today alleged that economic condition of the country was worst since Independence under the regime of Narendra Modi government at the Centre.

Mr Kushwaha who led the protest march of Grand Alliance from Gandhi Maidan to Collectorate against the anti-poor policies of NDA governments both at the Centre and in Bihar, as part of a statewide protest organised by the alliance, said that the country was passing through the phase of worst economic condition since Independence. All vital parameters of the national economy were at its nadir due to flawed policies of Narendra Modi government, he added.

RLSP leader said that no effort was made by Narendra Modi government to create employment opportunities for youths and those already employed were being shown the door by companies under retrenchment drive due to flawed policies being pursued by the present regime. India had never experienced such a massive impact of the recession as being witnessed under the present dispensation, he noted.

"BJP and its outfits in various forms had spread hatred on caste and creed lines across the country, disturbing the amity and peace", Mr Kushwaha said, adding that no one was feeling safe as criminal elements could incite violence even on flimsy grounds. The government had failed to take concrete steps to check activities of such elements, he felt.
