Shiv Sena backed former Minister of Finance Yashwant Sinha’s criticism of the economy and said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) needs to prove that the claims by Sinha are wrong.
Backing Sinha’s backlash at demonetization and the downward spiralling agricultural sector, the editorial in Shiv Sena mouth-piece ‘Saamna’ said, “Sinha has also focused on the conditions the country faced after demonetization.
He has compared it to a situation of adding fuel to fire as the country was already moving in a downward spiral.
Many of the government programmes like Make in India have failed. People are continuously losing their jobs. The prices of petrol and diesel are increasing. It was never this bad in the past two decades. Even the agricultural sector is struggling.”
