“Modi uses his power to unleash terror upon citizens” – Rahul Gandhi
The BJP has introduced two major changes since they came into power. Namely, the GST and demonetization. GST, or the Goods and Service Tax, is a measure that was introduced as a tax inclusive of all miscellaneous taxes. It unified taxes like service tax, sales tax, etc. under one umbrella. GST aims to make the taxation system of our country more efficient.
Demonetization is the process of making a currency null and void. The Modi government stripped the value of ₹500 and ₹1000 overnight, last year. NDTV reported that PM, Narendra Modi, defended his actions by saying that, “In the national interest, we are not afraid of taking big and tough decisions because for us, the country is above politics.”
How was demonetization justified? Simply, to check black money. The black money in the country will be kept in check with demonetization. Also, it helped to identify people who didn’t pay income tax. While some part of the population heralded the move as economic genius, the other part criticized the government of crushing the rural population.
Rahul Gandhi says…
In light of the one-year anniversary of the note ban, opposition party Vice President, Rahul Gandhi spoke up. He said that Modi was killing the economy. He compared the above-mentioned measures to two shots in the chest. Rahul Gandhi said, “Commandos in hostage situations fire what is called a double tap, two quick closed placed shots fired at the chest to make sure their terrorist target is dead…”, NDTV reported. He went on to comment that the Indian economy is crippling as a consequence.
He said that the PM failed to understand the Indian economy and put too much emphasis on black money. He blamed Modi for using his power to terrorize citizens. As the elections approach, Gandhi didn’t fail to make a statement that pledged his party’s to small businesses.
