and former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram during the Congress 84th Plenary session has widely raised the concern of each and every Indian., P. Chidambaram said no country in the world has acheived the figure of 3 to 3.5 percent per capita income in the time span of 10 years as UPA has successfully achieved from 2004 to 2014.

P. Chidambaram said the kind of economic growth India has acheived in the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh has been remarkable and acknoweledged globaly. He said Inhertence of such strong economy has been miscarried by BJP led NDA Govt. whereas at one end world is economy is growing incredibly on the other hand Indian economy is continuously going down., P. Chidambaram
saud Economic survey says there are three major challenges NDA Govt has not addressed in the last four years: Educational Health Agriculture and uneplyoment.

P. Chidambaram on Sunday described demonetization as the “greatest lie” and accused the BJP-led government of virtually destroying the economy.

“There cannot be a greater lie than demonetization,” Chidambaram said after presenting the party’s economic policy at the Congress plenary here.

He slammed the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for not telling the nation the total amount of demonetized currency it got back after Prime Minister Nadrendra Modi declared Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 currency illegal in November 2016.

“Demonetization was a big lie. The RBI is still counting and won’t tell us how much money has come back.”

Slamming the government over its failure to generate jobs, the Congress leader said that during the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) stint (2004-14) “we created jobs”.

“We didn’t create enough jobs but we created jobs. People found jobs, educated people found jobs, others got jobs in service industry.

“But in four years of the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) government they have not created jobs. They have destroyed jobs, demonetization destroyed jobs, a flawed GST destroyed jobs.”

Chidambaram said that only the Congress can bring the country out of the present “crisis”.

“Spread the word that a new young dynamic leadership has taken over the Congress. We will come back to power with friends and allies,” he added, referring to Rahul Gandhi who took over the reigns of the grand old party in December.

He said in 2014 there were 766 stalled project. In 2015 the number went up to 816 and further to 893 in 2016. “More projects are stalled today. Projects are not revived, projects are not started, projects are stopped.”

He targeted the Modi government for the slow economy growth.

“The Modi government inherited a strong economy. The task of development has to be continued by future generations. However, today, the Indian economy is decoupled from the world economy which is growing.”

Chidambaram said when Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister, the biggest achievement was that 14 crore people were lifted out of poverty.

“But the BJP government has pushed people into poverty. The number of people below poverty line went up.

Demonitization pushed thousands into poverty. Hundreds lost their lives standing in queues. GST destroyed jobs. GST pushed people into poverty, agrarian distress has pushed farmers into poverty, even daily workers have been pushed into poverty,” he said.
