Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday attacked the BJP government over the state of the economy, saying those ruling the country are busy in themselves while people are suffering on every front.

"The state of the economy in the country is bad. The service sector has fallen flat. Employment is decreasing. Those ruling are busy in themselves and the people are suffering on every front," she said in a tweet in Hindi.

Taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she said while he held his "Howdy Mody" event in the US, the Americans have reduced HB1 visas for Indians seeking to work there.

"The question that everyone should ask the BJP government is that who is being benefitted during their tenure. The prime minister went to the United States and held his 'Howdy Mody' event but America increased the number of rejections of HB1 visas for those Indians wanting to work there," she said in another tweet.

On Wednesday, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his "all is well" remark, saying such comments made abroad do not set things right as there are no reports of increase in employment coming from anywhere in the country.

In a tweet, she said, "videshon mein jaa kar sab changa si kehne se sab theek toh nahin ho jayega. Kahin se bhi rozgaar badhne, naye rozgaar paida hone ki khabar nahin aa rahi. Naami, girami companyion ne logon ko nikalna shuru kar diya hai. Changa si bolne wale hain ek dum chup si. Kyun?

"(Nothing will be set right by saying 'all is well' while visiting foreign countries. From no quarter is there any news about increase in jobs or creation of new jobs. Reputed companies have begun to lay off employees. Those who used to say 'all is well' are now silent. Why?)" tweeted Priyanka.
