Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had called the central government a pickpocket for imposing heavy taxes on petrol and diesel. On Wednesday, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri retaliated on the former Congress President. Puri called him a pickpocket who does not understand capital expenditure. Speaking at a conference organized by a news channel, Puri said that I am ready to debate on the economic development and progress made under the tenure of Modi government.

‘Modi government’s record increase in capital expenditure, this is economic development’
Puri said, ‘How do you see economic growth and progress in it? There has been a record increase in capital expenditure. This is called economic progress. He said this in response to a question about Rahul Gandhi’s tweet on November 1. In this tweet, the Congress leader had spoken of being wary of ‘pocket-killers’ and alleged that the central government was making profit and looting the common man by imposing heavy taxes on fuel.

At the same time, a day before Diwali i.e. on November 3, the Center had announced to reduce excise duty from petrol and diesel. Under this decision of the Center, excise duty on petrol was cut by Rs 5 per liter and on diesel by Rs 10 per liter. After this step was taken by the central government, many states had also announced to reduce VAT on petrol and diesel from their level and gave relief to the common man.

‘Ready to debate on Modi government’s actions and UPA scams’
Puri challenged Rahul Gandhi and said that I am ready to debate the development work done during the tenure of Modi government along with all the scams related to the UPA government. After this, he talked about the record high capital expenditure being done by the Modi government to bring the economy back on track due to the corona virus epidemic.
