Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said today that the government's back-series data for India's GDP, which downgrades growth during the previous Congress-led UPA's rule, is realistic, credible and more reflective of the economy. Mr Jaitley's strong defence of the new data came after the Congress accused him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of "malicious and fraudulent jugglery" to hide the poor state of economy.
