Patna: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) spokesperson Shivanand Tiwari, on the day when his boss and party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav skipped his appearance before a CBI team in Delhi by obtaining a two-week extension to prepare his case involving amassing of properties valued in crores allegedly through illegal means, said that India, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was undergoing the worst economic crisis that the nation had not seen before.

Speaking at a press conference in Patna on Monday, Tiwari said that the country had come to a virtual standstill since Modi became the Prime Minister of India.

"The initial honeymoon is over for the Prime Minister. He peaked his approval rating quite fast and now it is only downhill from here. The economy is in shamble as people struggle to buy essential items like petrol and vegetables while girl students are being beaten up by cops at college campuses," Tiwari said referring to the lathi charge on protesting girl students in Banaras Hindu University.

"Prime Minister Modi was not too far from the campus when the police rained batons on the student and yet he decided not to meet with the victims," he said.

Tiwari, who was brought from retirement by Lalu Prasad Yadav in the aftermath of the collapse of the Grand Alliance government in Bihar, said that Modi was full of hot air and had nothing to show for that would indicate he was a successful Prime Minister.

"All his talks are in the air. He cannot fool the public for too long. He has failed to create jobs for our youths and has also failed to improve the condition of our farmers. According to noted economist Subramanian Swamy, India has not seen such economic disaster in decades," the RJD leader who was kicked out by the JD-U in 2013 leading to his flirting with political retirement, said.
