Congress facing economic slowdown as its 'moneybag handlers' are in jail: BJP

Addressing central and state Congress leaders at a meeting here earlier on Thursday, Gandhi said the country is going through a prolonged economic slump, job losses are mounting by the day and the confidence of the investors is getting shakier.
