Manpreet Badal says BJP is trying to ruin economy with demonetisation and GST
Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal Tuesday alleged that the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was bent on ruining the country.
He also blamed the Modi government for "wreaking havoc" for the economy through decisions like demonetisation and GST. "After the independence in 1947, we built a nest, which is India. We got independence after toils and sacrifices...It did not come easily. But sadly, instead of protecting it, the prime minister is bent on ruining the country," he told reporters here.
Badal said they (Congress) never anticipated that the people currently calling the shots at the Centre would destroy the "good works" carried out by his party in the last 70 years.
Alleging that the BJP was politicising the country's institutions like the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the CBI, the Supreme Court, the CAG and the Election Commission, Badal said the Congress always focused on the politics of development.
