Former finance minister and Congress Party senior leader P Chidambaram addresses the media on a day when BJP's Yashwant Sinha slammed his government for wrecking the economy in column for the Indian Express. Highlights.

-- Congress has exposed many weaknesses in the economy and the terrible mismanagement.

--  But we are happy that Mr Yashwant Sinha has echoed our criticism (of the Govt).

-- Congress has, for nearly 18 months, highlighted these very grave weaknesses in economy. We were told, in effect, to shut up.

-- As I travel around the country, what I hear is "Achhe din to aaye nahi, ye bure din kab jaayenge? 

-- My appeal to all, especially those knowledgeable about economy, is to speak & write without fear; Darr ko chhod do.  

-- The govt is clueless on the economic decline. How long will it hide behind rhetoric of the PM and slogans of the party?
