Don’t Blame God For Man-Made Disaster: Chidambaram to Finance Minister

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Palaniappan Chidambaram said “the government should not blame God for man-made disaster” after Nirmala Sitaraman, Finance Minister of India, said that the economic slump was caused due to ‘Act of God’.
While speaking to NDTV, Chidambaram said that Sitaraman should instead “thank God” who “blessed the farmers of the country”.
“Don’t blame god. In fact you should thank god. God has blessed the farmers of the country. The pandemic is a natural disaster. But you are compounding the pandemic, a natural disaster, with a man-made disaster,” the 74-year-old Congress leader said during the interview.
Chidambaram criticised the government after India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth dropped by 23.9 per cent in the April-June quarter this year. He also questioned the claim of Subramanian Swamy, chief economic advisor, regarding the recovery post lockdown.
“I don’t know if anyone takes the Chief Economic Adviser seriously. When is the last time he had a conversation with the Prime Minister? He has been predicting V-shaped recovery for months. Then he saw green shoots when the Finance Minister said it. Where are the green shoots,” he told NDTV.
