Is that Really the Case Mr Chidambaram?
By S Gurumurthy
The UPA added 14 million jobs in the next two years, 2010-11 and 2011-12. But that was not under Chidambaram. But under Pranab! Under the UPA rule the rupee lost 35-50 per cent of its value. Foreign debt rose by four times. Forex reserves which were two and half times foreign debt is now just three-fourths of the debt. Imports of capital goods rose and destroyed the manufacturing base of India. And yet Chidambaram claims that he has left behind a healthy economy. Is that so Mr Chidambaram?
