Reacting to the GDP growth in the second quarter falling to 4.5 per cent, senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Saturday called on people of Jharkhand to record their rejection of BJP's policies and model of governance.
In a series of tweets posted on his behalf by his family, Chidambaram said ,''GDP growth in Q2 has come lower at 4.5 per cent. Yet the Government says, All is well". Q3 will not be more than 4.5 per cent and in all likelihood will be worse.
''People of Jharkhand must vote against the BJP and record their rejection of BJP's policies and model of governance. They have the first opportunity to do so.''
The first phase of polling for the Jharkhand Assembly is being held on Saturday.
