Recently, Indian Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman's spouse Parakala Prabhakar had also openly criticised the Modi government's economic policies.
India's Central Bank – The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has signalled that despite various government economic reform measures in recent months, public and industry sentiments remain unenthusiastic. A survey to gauge consumer confidence revealed low optimism regarding the general financial situation and employment scenario.
In September RBI surveyed households in 13 major cities, including the national capital New Delhi and the financial capital Mumbai with a sample size of 5,192 families. Almost half of the respondents (47.9 per cent) said, the general economic situation has worsened, while every third respondent (52.5 per cent) also felt the current job situation has worsened.
