Niti Aayog Vice Chairman calls out P Chidambaram’s lies and disingenuous tricks on GDP numbers

The Central statistical office re-calibrated the data to establish a better picture of the economy and thus lowered the GDP growth rates for a majority of the previous 10 years of the UPA regime.

Former Finance Minister of India, P Chidambaram, is mighty disgruntled with the revised GDP numbers released by the Niti Aayog for the UPA era. He has called it a “bad joke”.

Chidambaram also insinuated that the Niti Aayog Vice Chairman, Rajiv Kumar, was not open to debate the data and had told journalists that their questions were “undeserving of an answer”.

Rajiv Kumar did not take Chidambaram’s critique lightly and asserted that he accepts the Congress leader’s challenge for a debate to discuss the back series data. He also asserted that it was “disingenuous” of Chidambaram to say that he told the media not to ask questions.
