Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Tuesday said the stimulus package announced by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is yet another “sly attempt” to dazzle the people with exaggerated numbers and mislead them.
The former Finance Minister said the only way to generate demand is by “sharply stepping up” spending by 10 per cent more of the GDP, whereas the fiscal impact of the Centre’s announcements on Monday is estimated by analysts to be a mere 0.1 per cent of GDP.
