Pradhan's comment came after Chidambaram on Thursday rebuffed the Union Budget 2018-2019, saying that it was the 'worst budget'.
Talking to ANI, Pradhan said, "Chidambaram had made economy of country bankrupt. Banks were in bad state and had handed over the resources to the rich. That is why people gave answer to Chidambaram in 2014."
In a statement, Chidambaram listed out certain sectors, including exports, agriculture, healthcare, jobs, investment and tax relief, and recounted the failures of the government to bring improvement in all of them. (ANI)
