Ravi Shankar Prasad had said sponsored expert
Rajeev Chandrasekhar is not the first BJP leader who has attacked Raghuram Rajan. Earlier, on June 1, 2023, the very next day after the announcement of 7.2 percent GDP figures for the financial year 2022-23, BJP’s national spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad also attacked Raghuram Rajan on the pretext of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. Taking a dig at Raghuram Rajan, he said that all the predictions of the sponsored experts have proved wrong.
Bharat Jodo Yatra came under attack
Ever since Raghuram Rajan joined Rahul Gandhi in his Bharat Jodo Yatra, the former RBI governor has come under BJP’s target. During the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi had also interviewed Raghuram Rajan regarding the domestic and global economic situation. In the same interview, Raghuram Rajan had said that in the next financial year 2023-24, India would be lucky if it achieves the GDP figure of 5 per cent. GDP has been 7.2 percent in 2022-23, since then questions are being raised on Raghuram Rajan’s prediction and his statement is being severely criticized.
