'Attend to work, do fewer photo ops': Kapil Sibal takes dig at Narendra Modi over Abhijit Banerjee's concerns on Indian economy

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Tuesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Nobel Prize winner Abhijit Banerjee's remarks that the Indian economy is on shaky ground, saying the prime minister should attend to work and have less "photo ops".

Indian-American Banerjee, who on Monday won the 2019 Nobel for Economics, has said the Indian economy is on shaky ground and the data currently available does not hold any assurance for the country's economic revival anytime soon.

"Is Modiji listening? Abhijit Banerjee: 1) Indian economy on shaky ground 2) “political interference“ in statistical data 3) Average urban and rural consumption gone down - hasn't happened since the seventies. 4) We in (India) are in crisis. Attend to work. Less photo-ops," Sibal said in a tweet.

Banerjee bagged the coveted prize jointly with his wife Esther Duflo and another economist Michael Kremer for his "experimental approach to alleviating global poverty".
