Manmohan Singh: demonetisation decision ill considered, led to high unemployment

Mar 02, 2021 16:01 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Tuesday attacked the government for high rate of unemployment in the country. He pointed out that India's informal sector is in shambles following the "ill considered demonetisation decision" taken by the BJP-led government in 2016. He also criticised the central government for not holding regular consultations with the states. He said public finances are in disarray with states having to resort to excessive borrowing, which creates an intolerable burden on future budgets.
