Govt’s ‘crony capitalism’ causing economic crisis: Yechury

CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury has alleged the country is facing an “unprecedented economic crisis” because of demonetisation, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and crony capitalism of the BJP-led NDA government.

Addressing an election rally in Dahanu segment of Maharashtra’s Palghar district in support of CPI(M) candidate Vinod Nikole on Sunday, he said the BJP and Shiv Sena need to be defeated to save the country and its citizens.

“There is an unprecedented economic crisis in the country today, because of demonetisation, GST, NPAs (non- performing assets) and crony capitalism of the BJP government,” Mr. Yechury said.

He alleged that there was a move to shut the state-owned BSNL and MTNL to help industrialist Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio.

“Instead of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s slogan of Jai Hind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s new slogan has become ’Jio Hind’,” Mr. Yechury said. – PTI
