The current economic slowdown is diverting attention from the core issues of Kashmir alleged the opposition leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday.
Since the Union Budget was presented on 5th July, approximately Rs 13.7 lac crore has eroded from the Indian capital markets. People who invest in the stock market or have something to do with it are as a result paying no attention to the valley where additional 35000 paramilitary forces have been deployed.
Rahul Gandhi has blamed BJP of deliberately keeping the share market depressed so as to divert attention from what all is happening in Kashmir. He also alleged that Modi has asked big companies to downsize their employee strength so that no one notices India retaining PoK.
“It’s a usual practice of BJP to do something un-important and outrageous to divert people’s attention from their failures. After losing the three states of Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Rajasthan, BJP won 2019 elections to divert people’s attention from the loss they made in these states!” said Rahul Gandhi in a press conference.
Another opposition leader claimed that Chandrayaan 2 was an anticipatory attempt to divert attention from Ravish Kumar’s achievement of winning the Ramon Magsaysay Award.
