Bharatiya Janata Party MP Virendra Singh from Uttar Pradesh has stated that people wearing coats and jackets in spite of kurta and dhoti shows that there is no recession in the country.
"There have been discussions in Delhi and the world, about a recession. If there was any recession, we would have come here wearing kurta and ''dhoti'', not coats and jackets. If there was a recession, we would not have bought clothes, pants, and pajamas," said Virendra Singh.
Singh said that India is the country of villages and not just metropolitan cities.
"I want to inform you that this country is a country of 6.5 lakh villages and not just cities like Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyderabad. Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Hedgewar, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee and Jai Prakash Narain had expressed confidence in the villagers and helped the country gain independence," Singh added.
Data released by Modi last month showed that retail inflation had risen to 7.35 percent in December 2019 as compared to 5.54 percent in the previous month.
