New Delhi | Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has hit out at the Centre for the economic slowdown, this time taking a cricket reference.
“For taking a catch, it is important to keep your eyes on the ball and having the true spirit of the game. Otherwise you will keep blaming gravity, Math, Ola-Uber. Issued in public interest for Indian economy,” Ms. Vadra said in a tweet.
Gandhi’s remarks come following Union Minister Piyush Goyal’s statement about ‘gravity’ and ‘Math’.
Goyal had did said said at an event, “math not help Albert Einstein discover gravity” and that is why the government’s ambitious plan of nearly doubling the economy to $5 trillion by 2024 should not be viewed through the prism of mathematics.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is the Congress’s in-charge for eastern Uttar Pradesh, in a separate tweet, attacked the Yogi Adityanath-government in the State over delaying tactics to question BJP leader Swami Chinmayananda,who has been accused of rape by a law student.
“The BJP government in Uttar Pradesh, through its antics, has made it clear that it has nothing to do with women’s security. After all, why did the complainant girl had to come before the press to seek security? Why is the U.P. police going slow? Is it because the accused is from the BJP,”asked Ms. Vadra.
