NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday said news of an economic slowdown and the Modi government's silence on it was very dangerous.
"Countdown: Everyday news of economic slowdown and everyday BJP government's silence. Both are very dangerous... excuses, rhetoric and rumours will not work," Priyanka Gandhi tweeted using the hashtag 'economy in crisis'.
Earlier, she had attacked the government over the state of the economy.
She had said it should admit that there is a "historic slowdown" and move towards resolving it.
"Telling a lie a hundred times does not turn it into truth. The BJP government should accept that there is a historic slowdown in the economy and they should move towards taking measures to resolve it," she had said in a tweet on Tuesday.
"The slowdown is before everyone. Till when will the government keep running with headline management," she added.
Her attack comes after the GDP growth fell to 5 per cent for the quarter ending June, the lowest reported in over six years.
