Picking up from his Friday's duel with the prime minister in parliament, Jaitley, the leader of opposition in Rajya Sabha, told the BJP's legal and legislative cell that the prime minister's response on reversing the slowdown and free fall of rupee clearly showed that he had run out of the options.
"Instead of telling us about the roadmap to improve the economy, he was angry and pessimistic. This attitude means you have no ideas on how to revive the economy. You have run out of ideas," contended Jaitley.
Hitting at the prime minister's prolonged silence, Jaitley said that silence was good if one was looking for an answer but too long a silence of the prime minister was not good for the country.
"It is extremely dangerous when the head of the country becomes cynical, pessimistic and cannot suggest a roadmap," he said.
