It is only Modi government that listens to the people: Sitharaman
The Finance Minister said in the Lok Sabha on Monday – It is wrong to say that the government does not want to listen to the condemners. People from the industry contact me and I also travel around the country to talk to them. Sitharaman said- they misrepresented My tweet on Rahul Bajaj’s statement. I said that if someone spreads his ideas instead of talking to the government, then it will not be in the national interest. It is only the Modi government that listens to the people.
‘Ola-Uber statement was based on RBI study’
The Finance Minister said that the controversy over the impact of Ola-Uber on the auto sector should also end. They based his observation on an RBI study. Sitharaman said without naming that two years ago a well-known industrialist had said the same about Ola-Uber. Let us know that Sitharaman had said in September that the reason for the slowness in the auto sector is because of the excessive use of Ola-Uber by the youth. The opposition and some people in the industry also condemned his statement.
