GDP has no relevance, should not be treated as Bible, Ramayan and Mahabharat: BJP MP
NEW DELHI: Amid attack by the opposition over the state of the country's economy, BJP MP Nishikant Dubey said in the Lok Sabha on Monday that Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has no relevance and it should not be treated as 'Bible, Ramayan and Mahabharat'.
Participating in the discussion on the Taxation Law Amendment Bill and a statutory resolution disapproving the ordinance on the same legislation, Dubey said: "Sustainable economic development is more important than GDP".
Before Dubey, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, attacked the go nment over the falling GDP numbers.
The debate in the Lower House mostly hovered around the GDP slipping to an over-six-year-low of 4.5 per cent in the July-September quarter.
下议院的辩论主要围绕GDP在7 - 9月当季下滑至6年多来的低点4.5%展开。
Seeking to return fire, Dubey claimed GDP did not exist before 1934.
"Whoever talks about the GDP is wrong. GDP has no relevance to this country," Dubey said.

He is right. GDP is a Capitalist thing and therefore has no relevance as India is a Socialist country.
