New Delhi, August 14Trinamool Lok Sabha member Mahua Moitra took a dig at Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s statement on ‘Rewari culture’. TMC MP Mahua Moitra has challenged Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman by tweeting on the issue of giving free goods in the country. Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday said that when state governments announce concessions before elections, they should check the financial strength so that when they win and come back, they can fulfill the promises made to the people. Sharing a screenshot of a news article on Nirmala Sitharaman’s comment, Mahua Moitra tweeted, “Hey ma’am! I bet you 15 lakhs, show it to Modiji’s face.
What did Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman say on ‘Rewari Culture’?
“I am not saying that you should not give things to the public for free,” Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said at an interaction program organized by the BJP’s economic cell in Bengaluru. I am not saying that it should not be done. Do but understand the financial level of your state, understand the financial strength of your state and make this promise to the public in the elections. So if you win the election and come back to power, make sure you can do it. So make sure you have it in your budget before committing.
Sharing the screenshot of Nirmala Sitharanam’s same statement, TMC MP Mahua Moitra has mocked. Mahua Moitra said that she will take a bet of 15 lakhs, if Nirmala Sitharaman will show it by talking to PM Modi.
Err… Ma’am.. I’ll bet you 15 lakh rupees, you can’t tell this to Modiji to his face.
