The opposition has keenly critised the steps taken by Modi-led government after GST and demonetisation seemed to be ineffective for the common man.
Not only did the Congress, but BJP’s own former leaders like Yashwant Sinha had also called the note ban as ‘a disaster’ and the GST as ‘a poorly conceived’ scheme.
