PM Modi’s $5 trillion economy target a joke, says KCR; BJP hits back

Hyderabad, 12/2:Dubbing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious goal of India achieving $5 trillion economy as a “joke” and “silly”, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday said the target should have been much bigger.



Replying to the debate on the Appropriation Bill in the State Assembly, Rao, also known as KCR, hit out at Modi saying that the whole country expected that the Prime Minister would speak something on the Adani issue in the Parliament but people were disappointed.


The Chief Minister, referring to an article in an international magazine, said there was “License Raj” during the Congress rule while it was “Silence Raj” in the present government.


“By 2023-24, Modi said India will become a $5 trillion economy. That 5 trillion (economy) itself is a joke. Really silly. At least, our aim should be big. We should dare to dream. That 5 trillion (economy aim) itself is very very less, out of which only USD 3.5 trillion was achieved,” KCR said.
