Critics of Prime Minister Narendra Modi wasted no time in taking to social media to take a potshot at him and his government. That’s because Modi and his supporters had vowed to bring parity in the value of the Indian rupee against the dollar after coming to power in 2014.

The Congrss shared an old video of Narendra Modi, before he became the prime minister, as it wrote on Twitter, “Rupee continues to fall… Now 1 dollar has crossed Rs 82. Modi ji has expressed concern.” 

Twitter user Pracool wrote, “For the first time in history of independent India, rupee stands 82 against the dollar. Enjoy the ‘amrut kaal’ guys.”
