On August 31, Rahul Gandhi had alleged that the NDA government has been attacking the informal sector over the past 6 years and asserted that the aim of demonetisation, “wrong” Goods and Services Tax (GST) and lockdown is to destroy this sector.
His remark came in the first video of his new series on “how the Modi government has destroyed Indian economy” released on Monday.
