In yet another dig at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has again taken a swipe over demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST), saying that the Indian economy was in the "ICU" because of the two reforms.
Gandhi continued his attack by saying, “Dr Jaitley, the economy is in the ICU because of note ban and GST”.
He also tweeted a jingle, “Aap kehtey hai aap kissi sey kum nahi/ magar aapki dava mein dum nahi (You claim you are no less than the others, but your medicines have no strength).”

आप कहते हैं आप किसी से कम नहीं,
मगर आपकी दवा में दम नहीं
Yesterday, Gandhi took a jibe in filmy way.
“Dear Mr Jaitley, May the Farce be with you," tweeted the 47-year-old Congress leader, a witty take on the cult phrase from Star Wars.
On Monday, Mr Gandhi said the new national tax GST is the "Gabbar Singh Tax" after the iconic villain in Bollywood blockbuster Sholay. A villain that "covets people's earnings," he explained a day later.

ना सिर्फ डाक्टर जेटली की दवा नाकाम है बल्कि इन्होंने नोटबंदी से अर्थव्यवस्था की 'Oxygen' भी छीन ली है।— Fairoz Khan (@Fairoz_JK) October 26, 2017
