"In markets in rural areas, the demand, the consumption, the spending --- all have been shrinking. As a result, there is less demand and less production, which will lead to more lay-offs, and people will not get jobs."

Pilot dismissed as "unrealistic" the Narendra Modi government's talk of converting India "overnight" into a digital economy. He also ridiculed the Prime Minister for coming out with a new income disclosure scheme.

"The Income Tax law provides for a penalty of up to 90 per cent for declaring illegal income. But why has the Prime Minister reduced it to 50 per cent in the new scheme? Is it to help a few people?" he wondered.
