Rupee At Historic Low, ‘Monetary Policy Experts’ Like Chetan Bhagat, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar On A Vow Of Silence?
These 'financial gurus' are definitely short of expert advice.
The rupee reached a historic low of 68.89 against the US dollar today. The rupee has weakened by over 8 per cent for the year 2018 under the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) government.
What is interesting to note is that ‘monetary policy experts’ like Chetan Bhagat and Sri Sri Ravi Shanker who expressed deep concerns back in 2013 when the rupee was valued at 60 per dollar during UPA regime, seemed to have restored to a vow of silence today.
Today, when India is on the brink of economic crisis under the BJP government, these ‘financial gurus’ are definitely short of expert advice.
Rupee at 60. It is mayhem. Close to an economic crisis. But well, the government is silent.

It is refreshing to know that the rupee will get stronger at Rs.40/- per dollar if Modi comes to power http://t.co/OacZDXesGy

UPA Government and the Rupee seem to be in a competition with each other on who will tumble down more. http://t.co/Rl8RMMJ9kZ

In 2013, even Narendra Modi had said the fall in the value of rupee is not because of its ‘size’ but because of people sitting in Delhi who are busy in corruption.
Rupee is not losing strength because its size has changed.It is because those sitting in Delhi are busy in corruption: Modi ji

A Twitter user quoted Sushma Swaraj’s tweet in 2013, “The Rupee has lost its value. The Prime Minister has lost his grace.”
