NEW DELHI — Reacting to the news that Modi-led government plans to celebrate 100 days in office, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday attacked the government saying sectors such as automobile, transport and mining will see it as a celebration of their “ruin”.
She made the remarks on Twitter, sharing a media report highlighting the problems being faced by the auto industry.
“The BJP government is going to celebrate 100 days in office. But the auto sector, transport sector, mining sector will look at it as a celebration of their ruin,” the Congress general secretary tweeted in Hindi.
भाजपा सरकार सौ दिन का जश्न मनाने जा रही है। लेकिन ऑटो सेक्टर, ट्रांसपोर्ट सेक्टर, माइनिंग सेक्टर को तो ये जश्न बर्बादी के जश्न जैसा लगेगा। हर सेक्टर से एक के बाद एक प्लांट बंद होने और नौकरियाँ जाने की खबर आ रही हैं। #EconomicSlowdown #आर्थिकमंदी pic.twitter.com/NudiV6s3MV

From every sector, news of closing down of plants and job losses is coming, she said.
Meanwhile, the Congress’s official Twitter handle shared another media report about Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur being heckled at an auto industry event on Friday after he asked the industry players why sales had not picked up despite the measures taken by the government.
“The government must stop spinning tales of people choosing cabs instead of purchasing cars to explain automobile sector collapse. Fact is the slowdown is due to Demonetisation and poorly implemented GST – they must accept it & remedy it,” the Congress said, reports PTI.
