While addressing a “Yuva Aakrosh Rally” Jaipur of Rajasthan, the first of many such events against the citizenship law CAA, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that the Prime Minister probably hasn't studied or understood economics. He also said that Modi doesn't even understand what GST is. He further attacked the government over an economic slowdown and said, “During UPA, India grew at 9 %. The entire world was looking towards us. Today, you have different parameters to measure GDP and you have a 5% rate, if you use old parameters, then India is growing at 2.5%.” Src:
