Rahul Gandhi took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government taunting that the BJP's 'co-pilot' issued warnings to take 'precautionary measures' as their 'plane's wings' had fallen off. His taunt was a reaction to senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha's attack on Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for 'messing up' the economy.

The opposition party was quick to back Sinha and criticize the failure of the NDA government. Rahul gave a witty response with a tweet hinting that the economy is in a dangerous situation.

Several other Congress leaders, supporters and party workers also came out in support of Sinha, and asked the Modi government to take note since the criticism is coming from a member of their own party.

Meanwhile, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that Sinha, in his article, has spoken about the surgical strike on economy by the BJP and asked the people of the country to seek Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s reply on it.
 
“Be it the demonetisation, be it the growth in GDP or be it the disaster and the fashion, in which they are implementing GST, the truth is, Yashwant Sinha has rightly spoken as to how an experimental Finance Minister and an autocrat Prime Minister can rack India’s economy,” Surjewala told media in Chandigarh.
 
Asserting that the economy is in a state of flux, Congress Spokesperson said that the Prime Minister only speaks and finance minister only mismanages the economy.
 
He further said that the ruling dispensation is using probe agencies including Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) like puppets.
 
Earlier in the day, senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram also questioned the Centre on Twitter as to whether it would now admit the truth that economy is sinking.
