Economy during PM Modi's first tenure was actually worse than what we believed: Chidambaram

Congress leader P Chidambaram on Friday said the state of the economy during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's first tenure was worse than what was believed as growth rates for 2017-18 and 2018-19 are revised downwards.

He asked if the ministers will explain it.

"GDP growth rates for 2017-18 and 2018-19 are revised DOWNWARDS. The state of the economy under MODI-1 was actually worse than what we believed thus far .

"Will the articulate and voluble Ministers please speak on the state of the economy and explain the downward revision within the last two years and therefore the drastic slide within the current financial year ," Chidambaram tweeted.
