Chidambaram deteriorated a robust, healthy economy: Yashwant Sinha

New Delhi: Attacking the Congress led UPA government on the economy front, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday hit out at the Finance Minister P Chidambaram for India's weak economic condition. BJP leader and former finance minister Yashwant Sinha accused Chidambaram of deteriorating a robust and healthy economy.

He, in fact, posed 18 questions to Finance Minister P Chidambaram saying that evidence of his misrule was so evident that the markets rose on the day the Finance Minister announced he wont be contesting the 2014 elections.

"Chidambaram has gotten used to taking a strong economic situation and turning it into a disaster," Sinha said.

Meanwhile, showing confidence on bringing back the India's economy on track, Smriti Irani said, "The UPA government is leaving a legacy of economic challenges, we are ready to face those challenges."

BJP leader Sinha, Piyush Goyal, Subramanian Swamy and Smriti Irani on Sunday questioned the government's record in repairing the economy. The leaders held press conferences in different cities simultaneously.
