Congress has been on the offensive in terms of GDP figures of India.
It is in this context that Congress leader Sanjay Jha went on to allege that had the GDP figures were not artificially manipulated, the real GDP would be between 4.75% to 5.25%.
He tweeted that this is why there are no jobs, rural distress and low private investment and termed it to be a massive con-job.
Congress is hoping to capitalize on campaign of lower economic growth.
The party’s campaign got further boost when many economists wrote against tendencies to suppress infavourable employment data.
