While paying tribute to Congress leader Jaipal Reddy in Delhi, who passed away in July, Joshi said there are some questions that are important to the country and in some cases also important to the world.
“Shri Jaipal Reddy had years of experience in public life. He was respected as an articulate speaker and effective administrator. Saddened by his demise,” the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted quoting Modi.
According to Reddy, fiscal deficit that, otherwise, would have been caused by "losses" due to GST implementation and demonetisation was offset by the revenue that it got by levying extra taxes on petrol and diesel.
Last week, the Congress won 73 of the 81 seats in the Nanded-Waghala Municipal Corporation polls in Maharashtra. Reddy said these performances would give a fresh momentum to the Congress and it also shows the "declining trend of the NDA".
