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'.

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'.

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.
