Speaking on the same, Gandhi said “Dr Jaitley, economy is in ICU because of demonetization and GST. You said that you are not less than anyone, but there isn’t any weight in what you say”.
डॉ जेटली, नोटबंदी और GST से अर्थव्यवस्था ICU में है।
आप कहते हैं आप किसी से कम नहीं,
मगर आपकी दवा में दम नहीं

Rahul Gandhi has been consistently hitting out at Bharatiya Janta Party over GST and note ban lately.
Two days ago, Rahul dubbed the Goods and Services Tax as 'Gabbar Singh Tax', naming it after Bollywood's iconic villain as he fired a fresh salvo at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the sweeping tax reform and demonetistion.
"Their (Centre's) GST is not GST. GST means Gabbar Singh Tax. This is causing a loss to the country. Small shopkeepers are finished. Lakhs of youths have gone unemployed. But they are still not ready to listen” Gandhi said.
Stating that the GST, in its present form, is not what the Congress had conceived, Gandhi said that although his party had warned the government about the adverse impact of the new tax regime (in the present form), the Modi government acted against its suggestions. Gandhi also asked the government to change the new tax system by making it simpler.
