Taking a dig at the government, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today alleged that selling public sector banks to “cronies” will compromise the country’s financial security.
He also accused the government of “privatising profit and nationalising loss”.
“Government of India (GOI) is privatising profit and nationalising loss. Selling PSBs to Modicronies gravely compromises India’s financial security,” Mr Gandhi tweeted.
The Congress leader also expressed solidarity with the protesting bank employees, who are on a two-day strike against alleged privatisation of public sector banks.
“I stand in solidarity with the striking bank employees,” he said on Twitter.
GOI is privatising profit & nationalising loss.
Selling PSBs to Modicronies gravely compromises India’s financial security.
I stand in solidarity with the striking bank employees.#BankStrike
