In an exclusive interview with ANI, the Finance Minister, who was in US to attend the annual meeting of the IMF and World Bank, said that the comments made by the experts worldwide on India’s structural reforms underline the country’s confident image.
The Finance Minister slammed the Congress party for criticizing the structural reforms introduced by the government and said that the opposition’s criticism has no weight.
“The aim of demonetization was to crack the backbone of the shadow economy, which was running on black money. To curb the menace of black money was never Congress’ priority. So now they are tensed, and it is justified. Talking about GST, it was Congress’ proposal and now they are trying to change their stand.Finance ministers of all Congress-run states back the GST but Congress being an opportunist party is opposing the uniform tax reform. So I think Congress’ criticism has no strength,” he added.
