Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday lauded former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the "precise" prediction concerning the "damage" caused by demonetisation, saying it was better than any other economist.
Gandhi made the remarks in his speech at the Congress Parliamentary Party meeting here.
"Manmohan Singhji, who in his economic wisdom saw 2 per cent damage by demonetisation... I don't know what mathematics he did, what calculations he did, but it turned out that it was the most precise, better than pretty much any other economist, so we thank him for that," Gandhi said.
He also lauded other party members for their role in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The last session of the 16th Lok Sabha concluded on Wednesday.
