Modi ji is running the “Sell Government Companies” campaign. says the Congress leader
NEW DELHI — Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the Modi government of selling the country’s assets to recover its economic losses and described as “shameful” reports of the sale of stake in Life Insurance Corporation (LIC),.
In a tweet in Hindi Rahul said, “Modi ji is running the “Sell Government Companies” campaign. The country’s assets are being sold one by one to make up for their own economic mess.”
मोदी जी ‘सरकारी कंपनी बेचो’ मुहीम चला रहे हैं।
खुद की बनायी आर्थिक बेहाली की भरपाई के लिए देश की सम्पत्ति को थोड़ा-थोड़ा करके बेचा जा रहा है।
जनता के भविष्य और भरोसे को ताक पे रखकर LIC को बेचना मोदी सरकार का एक और शर्मनाक प्रयास है। pic.twitter.com/W4OjDJ1nY7

“Selling LIC is another shameful attempt of the Modi government while setting aside the future and trust of the people,” he said.
There are reports that the government may divest its stake by 25 per cent in the public sector LIC, which is fully owned by it at present, reports PTI.
