India doesn’t need ‘foolish theories about millennials’, but concrete plan to fix economy: Rahul Gandhi

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked the Narendra Modi government over the state of the economy, saying what India needs is not propaganda, manipulated news cycles and foolish theories about millennials, but a concrete plan to fix the economy.

Gandhi’s attack on the government comes two days after finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Chennai on Tuesday said that the slowdown in the automobile sector was due to many factors like the change in mindset of millennials, who now prefer taxi aggregators like Ola and Uber, instead of committing for monthly installments to own a car.

Uber, Ola a factor in slow auto sales: Finance minister

“There are multiple factors impacting slowdown. Some buyers want to wait for BS6. We also understand that millennials don’t want to lock themselves up with EMIs on auto loans and hence prefer Ola or Uber or Metro (trains). We are listening to everyone,” finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman said amidst a slowdown in the auto sector industry.

“What India needs isn’t propaganda, manipulated news cycles & foolish theories about millennials, but a concrete plan to #FixTheEconomy that we can all get behind,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

“Acknowledging that we have a problem is a good place to start,” the former Congress president said.

Gandhi also tagged an interview of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in which he had said the government must simplify and rationalise GST, kickstart rural consumption, revive agriculture and tackle the lack of credit for capital creation.
