New Delhi [India], Sept. 4 (ANI): Taking a swipe at Congress leader Anand Sharma's comment on the Indian economy under the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), Union Minister of Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad on Sunday said it is Sharma's 'ego' which is speaking, because the opposition is still unable to digest their defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.

"We can't expect more from this party. This is Anand Sharma's ego, because the Congress has still not understood that they have been defeated badly at the Centre and in states, and will also loose in the future," Prasad told ANI.

Commenting on the condition of the Indian Economy during the United Progressive Alliance's regime, he said it was mired in 2G and coal scams.

"India is moving towards a larger economy, and investments are coming in India. The World Bank and other rating agencies have said India has the most progressive economy," he added.

Yesterday Sharma slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that he has no understanding of the economy and accused Modi for 'misleading' the country.

Sharma challenged the Centre to present a 'White Paper' to prove economic mismanagement during the UPA regime.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an interview on Friday said the Indian government has started bearing fruit, and there is no reason for alarm.

He said his government has worked in all fairness without showing any bias to any particular political party or individuals. (ANI)
