At the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meet on Tuesday, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and party president Sonia Gandhi lashed out at Narendra Modi over his style of functioning over the last three years. A raft of jibes was taken at PM Modi and ruling BJP at the Centre during the party’s supreme decision-making body CWC meeting. Besides the attack on the government, party leadership has asked its members to be prepared for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. Singh had earlier criticised PM Modi over demonetisation move saying the note ban would have a very significant adverse effect on the country’s GDP.

Here are five crucial points from Singh’s attack on the Modi government

1. Manmohan Singh said that India’s economic growth has slowed down sharply due to the note ban that was ordered by PM Modi on November 8.

2. Singh said that private sector investment has collapsed and the economy is running on just one engine, which is public spending.

3. Former PM expressed serious concern over the situation, particularly the impact on job creation. “The most worrisome aspect of all this is the impact on job creation. Jobs have been extremely hard to come by for the youth of the nation,” he said.

4. Manmohan also highlighted the job-loss factor. He noted that the construction industry, which is one of the largest employment generators in the country, has suffered contraction. This, he said, “implies the loss of millions of jobs for the nation’s workforce”.

5. The former Prime Minister, an acclaimed economist himself, said the Gross Value Addition (GVA) is the true sub-measure of economic activity and it has experienced a steep and sustained fall. Singh said the GVA growth of industry has fallen from 10.7 per cent in March 2016 to just 3.8 per cent in March 2017, a decline of nearly seven percentage points of growth.

On January 9, while speaking in Rajya Sabha during a debate on the demonetisation issue, Singh had flayed the central government and PM Modi over the note ban, saying its implementation was a monumental management failure and a case of organised loot and legalised plunder. Singh was speaking in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha.

    Modi is Great.....Manmohan is stupid. Khangress has spoiled India in last 70 year. Veer Savarkar knew this so he requested Britishers not to leave India in the hand of Nehru. We need leaders like Modi now so that by 2020 we can make India a Hindu Country. Jai Ram

      This is all the height of blind faith, modi cannot even clear a bank clerk exam but because of his fantasies he is bigger economist than a world renowned economist I.e our Manmohan Singh. And people in India want eloquent liars than silent performers.

              Very sad to see that this famous economist who was unfortunately our prime minister for 10 years are now lamenting about growth of fake economy, corrupt business practices flourished like real state sector with ill gotten wealth, job loss may be due to tight MANREGA payments through Adhar card system etc.. Without iota of same, the fountain head all the corruption like Coal scam, 2G, 3G and several others has no business to criticize and in fact if there is honest and upright systems like what we have in US then this person must be behind bar for being silent spectator of all the loots. Why dont we see that more than 80 lakhs people have taken the benefit of MUDRA scheme. Biggest achievement of this Govt is to throw away the disgusting governing pattern evolved by Raj darbari arrangement practiced by Congress, SP, BSP, and other third rated parties. Pl. search your conscious and ask this question whether Dr Singh was true prime minister or he was installed and remote controlled PM.

                India is indeed very fortunate to have a person of Dr Manmohan Singh's stature and wisdom to lead the country into economic prosperity. Mr Modi should realize this and request his guidance for bringing the economy back on track. After all, Dr Manmohan Singh is a former Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, former Finance Minister as well as a former, very successful Prime Minister as well!!

                  MuteMohan Singh should maintain his dumb nature as is his loyalty towards Queen Sonia. MuteMohan will be respected by non congress because of congress his muteness, Glasses and Turban. Don't loose that respect by talking nonsense like a Sonia sycophant!

                          When PM asked for just 50 days during the demonetization, what and how will people be responsible for remaining money left with them. These notes were printed in the Govt. Printing press with a promise. It is the responsibility of the Govt to collect those remaining denominations back to RBI. It is hard earned money in form of ry, petty savings, gifts. Remember, there was no sufficient money in ATM. New denomination of RS. 2000 in circulation. No sufficient time to stand in line for long hours. We suffered a lot to be precise. Why there is no talk on that. Have we really achieved anything on it. Now it is already more than 6 months. Never expect anything when you help. It will always be forgotten. Shri. Dr. Manmohan Singh is right.

                            They are indeed crucial points and the Prime Minister should come up with some positive answers on the same.

                                A coma that propelled India as a super economy, managed to revive the growth trajectory hampered by a spell of Vajpayee in power and constantly maintain a GDP of 7 even in the face of a global recession, that even overtook China for the first time and at a period where top western world economies were posting GDP rates of less than half a percent! Guess who is really in a coma, though your ability to write a comment whilst in it is remarkable!

                                Also, foreign jobs available to Indians has reduced due to lack of s and marketing as well as support to the Visa process. s & Marketing as well as diplomacy is missing on interaction with important countries such as USA, UK, Australia, Germany etc. So, this means Indian Job Seekers are not getting many jobs as they used to get with these markets earlier as well as the Indian IT market has suffered. Clearly, Diplomacy, s and Marketing needs to be changed by the Indian Government. Visa Processing Recruiters are taking fee, do ents and neither processing after consuming 6-12 months and also not refunding the fees. So, this type of mushrooming of fee-taking agencies and not providing results has increased in the recent years which the government needs to research and male sure such things do not happen.

                                  Ha ha ha! For one that looks educated you are surprisingly ignorant! How much diplomacy was involved while the KLEPTOCRACY of the white widow waitress looter queen was looting in amounts as large as 1860,000,000,000 rs ( put the number in long hand expecting you wouldn't know how many ZEROS go behind 186 to make 1.86 lakh crore)¡
