PM Modi took lessons from Manmohan Singh on economy: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s meeting with his successor Narendra Modi had fuelled intense speculation but Rahul Gandhi had a different take — the Prime Minister took “lessons” on economy.

In keeping with his new-found aggression, the Congress vice president targeted Modi, saying he called Singh to his residence Wednesday after the economist-turned politician tore into the handling of the economy by the government.

“Manmohan Singh criticised the health of economy in the morning yesterday (Wednesday). Narendra Modi took pathshaala (lessons) from him in the evening. I will ask him (the former PM),” he said addressing the national convention of NSUI, drawing a huge round of applause from the gathering. Hours after slamming the NDA government, Singh met Modi at his 7 Race Course Road residence and discussed issues related to economy and foreign policy.

“Very happy to meet Dr. Manmohan Singh ji & welcome him back to 7RCR. We had a great meeting,” Modi tweeted later along with their photographs.

In a statement, Singh’s office said the former prime minister met Modi at the latter’s “invitation” and “they discussed the economic situation in the country and foreign policy issues.”

At the NSUI event, Gandhi also took potshots at the Prime Minister’s pet ‘Make in India’ scheme, saying a “zero” will come out of it. “Nothing is going to come out of ‘Make in India’. It’s a big zero. It is going to yield a zero. For ‘Make in India’, you have to give power to common man. For ‘Make in India’, you have to give confidence to poor people. They think that they will empower two or three big industrialists and ‘Make in India’ will happen. “It will not happen. See after five years but why five years? Just see the one year of their government. Has anybody got employment,” he asked.
