Modi Govt does not acknowledge the word ‘slowdown’: Manmohan

NEW DELHI: Attacking the Modi Government on the state of the economy, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said the current dispensation does not acknowledge the word “slowdown” and the real danger is that if problems are not recognised, then finding credible answers to take corrective action is unlikely.

Addressing a gathering at the launch of Montek Singh Ahluwalia’s book “Backstage”, Singh said the former planning commission deputy chairman has written about the good as well as the weak points of the UPA Government.

“I think these issues will be debated and should be debated because we have today a Government that does not acknowledge that there is such a word as slowdown. I think this is not good for our country,” the former Prime Minister said. (AGENCIES)
