'After predicting that growth in Q4 of 2017-18 will touch 8%, Mr Panagariya has wisely resigned before proved wrong,' the Congress leader tweeted on late Tuesday night.
Panagariya resigned from his post on Tuesday, and will hand over charge of his office on August 31.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appointed him as the first vice-chairman of NITI Aayog on January 5, 2015.
He said that about two months ago he had expressed his desire to Prime Minister Modi to be relieved by August 31.
Panagariya had gained a prominence in the central government and is considered by some as the 'government's man'.
He had, many times, praised the Bharatiya Janata Party government for putting 'the economy back on track'.
