Sonia Gandhi wrote to PM Modi- 'How the rates of a vaccine are different? Government is promoting profiteering
The Congress on Thursday hit out at Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman after she ordered withdrawal of the interest rate slashing order and asked whether the U-turn was an 'oversight' or an 'election-driven hindsight'.
Interest rates of small savings schemes of GoI shall continue to be at the rates which existed in the last quarter of 2020-2021, ie, rates that prevailed as of March 2021.— Nirmala Sitharaman (@nsitharaman) April 1, 2021
Orders issued by oversight shall be withdrawn. @FinMinIndia @PIB_India
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi alleged that the small saving rates would be reduced soon after elections.'There was already a loot on petrol and diesel and soon after the elections end, the small saving rates will be reduced and there will be a loot on the savings of the middle-class.'This government is of jumlas (rhetoric) and the loot of common people,' Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi using the hashtag 'oversight'.
पेट्रोल-डीज़ल पर तो पहले से ही लूट थी, चुनाव ख़त्म होते ही मध्यवर्ग की बचत पर फिर से ब्याज कम करके लूट की जाएगी।— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) April 1, 2021
जुमलों की झूठ की
ये सरकार जनता से लूट की!#Oversight
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, 'Really Nirmala Sitharaman 'oversight' in issuing the order to decrease interest rates on GOI schemes or election driven 'hindsight' in withdrawing it?
'One can imagine the functioning of economy when such duly approved order affecting crores of people can be issued by an 'oversight'. Who is the competent authority referred in order,' he said on Twitter.
