The economy may be slowing down but it is not in recession, Nirmala Sitharaman said during a heated debate in Parliament. Fair point, but there is something amiss when a finance minister posits a negative argument such as this as a positive for her government. What is more, a Reuters poll of economists suggests that the quarter ended September is likely to grow at 4 per cent, down from 5 per cent in the previous quarter and 7 per cent in the same quarter in 2018. Tackling this slowdown and coping with its fiscal impact dominate the opinion pages today.
