The Congress described as “melodramatic theatrics” the speech by prime minister Narendra Modi who defended the economy on a day when the Reserve Bank of India lowered the growth forecast.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala took to twitter to criticise Modi.
“All drivers of our economy are sputtering & stumbling. Future of the young generation is at stake. Can sugar coated dramatics help,Modi ji?, asked Surjewala.

His another tweet said: “Investment is stagnant. Projects worth ₹13.32 Lakh Cr are stalled. Lack of Clearances biggest reason! But Modi ji is giving only speeches.”
Pointing out that inflation is rising, the Congress leader said that Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPI's) “have pulled out $3.2B from our market because you demolished our Macroeconomic Fundamentals, Modi ji”.
