Manmohan Singh on Sunday said the state of the economy was "deeply worrying" and that "all-round mismanagement" by the Modi government has resulted in this slowdown.
The former prime minister also said the last quarter GDP growth rate of 5 per cent signals that "we are in midst of a prolonged slowdown".
