Economy falling into deep abyss of recession: Priyanka

New Delhi: Hitting out at the Modi government, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today said the economy is falling into a “deep abyss” of recession and asked when will the dispensation “open its eyes”.

Her remarks comes amid opposition’s criticism of the government after growth in the last quarter slipped to 5 per cent.

“The economy is falling into a deep abyss of recession. The sword is hanging on the livelihood of lakhs of Indians,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

The decline in the auto sector and the truck sector is a sign of negative growth in production-transportation and the declining confidence of the market, she said.

When will the government open its eyes, the Congress general secretary asked.
