Nowadays, even the Prime Minister does not point out why ”achhe din’‘ haven’t come and even when it has come, why it’s not seen,” Mr Khurshid informed information ANI right here.
Mr Khurshid went on to say that the rising inflation will influence the poor essentially the most.
“It is very sad because inflation impacts the poor the most. Many of the social welfare schemes have been impacted by it and the budget has been reduced,” he added.
