Rahul slams PM over high inflation, blames him for 'tukde tukde' situation of home budgets

New Delhi, Jan 14 (UNI) Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday made a scathing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi over inflation, which recorded an all time high of 7.35 per cent, stating that the Prime Minister has shattered the domestic budget of Indians.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, Mr Gandhi posted, "Modiji ne deshwasiyon ke gharelu budget ke tukde-tukde kar diye hain (Mr Modi has shattered the domestic budget of people of this nation into pieces)."
"Backbreaking inflation, killing unemployment and falling GDP have created a state of 'economic emergency'. Vegetables, pulses, edible oil, LPG and inflation of food items have snatched away the morsel even from the mouth of the poor,'' he added.
Mr Gandhi's response came a day after the Government released the retail inflation data, which has skyrocketed into a five and a half years high and caused a huge rise in the price of essential commodities, including vegetables.
Earlier in the day, former finance minister P Chidambaram had also criticised the government and said that a "sliding economy is a greater threat to the nation than the current anti-CAA and anti-NPR protests."
