Rahul gandhi said Rupee’s fall on Modi gov
As the Rupee hit a new low on Thursday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said the news was ‘not breaking, but broken’. The Rupee sank to a fresh low of 73.77 against the US Dollar, after falling 44 paise in early trade
The Rupee had closed at a record low of 73.34 on Wednesday, down 43 paise or 0.59%. The BSE Sensex, meanwhile, plunged over 500 points, or 1.39%, to 35,447.69 in early trade Thursday. The broader Nifty fell over 160 points, or 1.53%, to 10,693.65.
Gandhi’s tweet came a day after he questioned the government on its silence in the matter. “The rupee has crossed the 73 mark and price rise is causing an outcry. Fuel and gas prices are on fire and the markets are scurrying. Till when will the 56-inch chest be on ‘silent mode’,” he had tweeted on Wednesday
