She said the slowdown was for everyone to see and asked till when will the government-run by "managing headlines".
"Telling a lie a hundred times does not turn it into truth. The BJP government should accept that there is a historic slowdown in the economy and they should move towards taking measures to resolve it," she said in a tweet in Hindi.
"The slowdown is before everyone. Till when will the government keep running with headline management," she said.
Her attack comes after the GDP growth fell to 5 per cent for the quarter ending June, the lowest reported in over six years.
