When will Modi govt open its eyes: Priyanka on economy

New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday mocked the Modi government over the economic slowdown and the crisis faced by the auto industry, asking when would the government open its eyes.

"The economy is falling into a deep abyss of recession. A sword is hanging on the livelihood of millions of Indians. The decline in the auto sector is a sign of negative growth in production-transportation and the declining confidence of the market. When will the government open its eyes?" Priyanka said in a tweet in Hindi, attaching a news report.

Her remarks came a day after automobile sales in August were recorded at the lowest level since 1997-98, leading to the sector seeking a "bigger stimulus package" to revive growth.
