Rahul Gandhi dig at Narendra Modi over economic slowdown: 'pessimists are going global'

New Delhi: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his remarks dubbing the opposition as "pessimists" and said "pessimists are going global".

Rahul while taking on the prime minister posted a link of an article about World Bank downgrading India's growth forecast, after the International Monetary Fund.

Modi had compared critics of his government with a character in the Mahabharata, who used to demoralise Karna while engaged in the battle with Arjuna.

Modi had also said that people who spread pessimism sleep well only after they spread that feeling all around and asked to recognise them.

Rahul had earlier said that instead of making excuses, Modi should speak up instead.
