“BJP is trying to bring the two Indias together that Congress had created,” said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman while acknowledging the comment by Rahul Gandhi.

The news: It was right after the budget session on Wednesday that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had attacked BJP saying that two Indias have been created, one for the rich and one for the poor and the gap between them is continually widening. Gandhi even claimed that the country is at risk, both internally and externally.

  • To this, Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman replied, “It is the two Indias that they’ve created that we’re trying to bring together.”

What’s going on: Sitharaman even took a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s comment which called the Budget 2022-23 a “zero-sum budget”.

  • While addressing the tweet by Gandhi, the finance minister said that it was an “uninformed comment on the budget”, also adding that his party should first implement what he preaches in the Congress governed states.
  • Further in her comments, Sitharaman said, “That’s not right. I wish as a leader of the oldest party, please understand what has been said. I pity people who come up with quick responses. Quick and understanding response I am ready to answer but just because you want to put something on Twitter, it does not help.”

What they are saying: While Sitharaman was commenting on Gandhi’s Tweet, she was backed up by the Minister of State for Finance, Pankaj Chaudhary, who said that it is correct to assume that Rahul Gandhi could not understand the budget which will have far-reaching implications.
