Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, whose scathing criticism of the government over the economy has kicked up a storm, today went a step further and said the BJP can no more blame the Congress for the “mess” since it has been more than three years of the Narendra Modi regime.
“There was a constant downfall in the economy, but I did not speak. We cannot blame the previous government anymore because we got a full opportunity to fix the economy,” Sinha, who served as Finance Minister during Atal Bihari Vajpayee rule.
Sinha said the fact that the Indian economy is in bad shape has been known for a long time. “I am not judging on the basis of one-quarter.
The economy is falling from the last six quarters,” he said. “I hope the government will wake up and the economy will catch the pace,” he said.
