Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Sept 28 (ANI): Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut backed party mouthpiece Saamna article which supported former finance Minister Yashwant Sinha's comments on the economy, saying that they have been saying the same thing for nearly a year now.
He added, "Yashwant Sinha has put forward this today but we had been saying this since a long time that it will affect the economic condition and it already has."
Raut also said that the Shiv Sena did not aim to target its ally party and was only speaking the truth.
He went on to say that the economic matter of a country cannot be the internal matter of a state and said that a committee needs to be set up to look into this.
Backing Sinha's backlash at demonetization and the downward spiralling agricultural sector, the editorial in Shiv Sena mouth-piece 'Saamna' said, "Sinha has also focused on the conditions the country faced after demonetization. He has compared it to a situation of adding fuel to fire as the country was already moving in a downward spiral. Many of the government programmes like Make in India have failed. People are continuously losing their jobs. The prices of petrol and diesel are increasing. It was never this bad in the past two decades. Even the agricultural sector is struggling."
