People who are in power are making “weird” statements, these will not change the condition of the economy but it will hamper the image of the government. 

Abhishek Manu Singhvi lashed out

BJP is blaming everyone even the voters except how they handle the economy. He also quoted, Followers of Modi, has crossed 50 million, Economy will cross $5 trillion, but how? Youth are unemployed, are you going to blame the opposition for this or OLA and Uber?


So Finance Minister is saying that sales of busses and trucks are declining because millennials are not purchasing it as they were doing it before.
