Rahul Gandhi says PM's tenure useful as case study on ruining 'world’s fastest growing economies'

New Delhi: 

Taking jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday listed a number of issues in the nation and accused the Narendra Modi-led Centre of misgovernance. He said the 8 year long tenure of Prime Minister is a case study on ruining ‘world’s fastest growing economies’. 

Gandhi said, “Power Crisis, Jobs Crisis, Farmer Crisis, Inflation Crisis. PM Modi’s 8-years of misgovernance is a case study on how to ruin what was once one of the world’s fastest growing economies.”

The former Congress president was pointing out the current coal crisis in the nation. In the past few days, the Congress has been vocal against the power crisis and it has been continuously lashing out at the Centre. 

Meanwhile, Congress Senior leader and lawyer Kapil Sibal blamed the BJP for mishandling power crisis. He claimed that the power crisis started when the ruling government blamed Congress for wrongly allocating coal blocks and the Supreme Court cancelled them.

He had alleged, “Genesis of this power crisis goes back to when BJP and CAG gave report that coal blocks were allocated wrongly during Congress government and Supreme Court cancelled them. They did the auction again and it’s yet to be completed because of the increased prices.”

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel also remarked on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s urge to reduce the taxes on petrol and diesel to provide relief to the people from the price hike.

He said, “Coal being imported is coming at high prices and you are (Centre) not giving royalty to the states anyway. The Government of India is not able to arrange coal and other things. They have stopped distributing coal supply to sectors other than the electricity department,” Baghel told media persons.

Several states of India have been reeling from power outages due to the coal crisis in the country. Coal India Limited has reported an increase of 27.2 per cent in its output in April 2022, as compared to the year-ago period, the Ministry of Coal on April 28.
