Congress blames centre for 'hiding' economic slowdown

The Congress on October 9 blamed the BJP-led central government for "hiding" the economic slowdown in the country. Party leader Pawan Khera addressed a press briefing in which he said, "The government is trying its best to ensure that there are no discussions on slowdown, nobody talks about slowdown, lest divert the issue of the country the actual issue facing us," said Khera. He also added that demonetisation was the first fatal blow on the economy and GST was the second fatal blow.
