New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday slammed the Centre for the “poor shape of economy” and also lambasted the state government in Uttar Pradesh for increasing the value-added tax  (VAT) on petrol and diesel.  Gandhi took to Twitter and shared two advertisements by the Northern India Textile Mills Association the Indian Tea Association titled 'Indian Spinning Industry Facing Biggest Crisis, Resulting in Huge Job Losses' and 'Tea Industry in Crisis', respectively.

"These advertisements are revealing the reality of the BJP government's claims about the economy. Till now industrial organisations used to advertise that we are moving forward. In the BJP rule, many have to advertise and say that we are drowning, save us. The rest you can understand," she said in Hindi.


In a separate tweet, she attacked the UP government saying the "BJP has put the burden of its collapsed and corrupt policies on the people".

She accused the BJP of picking the people's pocket by increasing prices of petrol and diesel. The UP government has increased the VAT on petrol and diesel on Monday midnight.
