Separately, in a newspaper column, the former observed that the government revenue had become oil-dependent and it was loathing to give up on easy revenues.

"There is mounting anger among the people as prices of petrol, diesel and LPG soar every day," he added.

The former also took a jibe at the for its claims of ending black money through demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

"Government claims that demonetisation and GST have wiped out black money. CEC (Chief Election Commissioner) says democracy under threat from black money. Where is the black money coming from? Crisp new Rs 2,000 notes?" he said in another tweet.
