Congress president Rahul Gandhi has reacted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attack on Demonetisation. This reaction comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi at rally hit out at Rahul and Sonia Gandhi for questioning him on demonetisation.
Modi had said he did not need a “certificate of honesty” from the “mother-son duo” who are out on bail. The prime minister had also said demonetisation helped recover from “under someone’s bed and in cupboards. They want an account of demonetisation. It was due to the demonetisation that bogus companies were identified. And because of that you had to seek bail. Why do you forget that it was due to the note ban that you had to seek bail.”
So , launching a counter attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over demonetisation, Rahul Gandhi said the note ban hurt the poor and benefited the rich wearing “suit-boot”.
The PM’s latest Demonetisation barf is, “Shell Firms”.
Ironically, the only “Shell” firms identified after the great Demonetisation tragedy are:

Addressing a rally ahead of the second phase of polling in the state on November 20, Gandhi also charged the Modi government with ensuring benefit to Anil Ambani’s company through the Rafale aircraft deal. The Modi-led government “snatched” Rs 30,000 crore from the poor and put it in the pocket of the industrialist, Gandhi said.
The Congress, if propelled to power, would write off debts of farmers in Chhattisgarh within 10 days of forming the government, he said.
“He (Modi) said the note ban brought money out of pillows of people. He is right. But he did not tell from whom the money was snatched…all the poor people (had to) queue up (to exchange notes). Did any billionaire queue up? Did anyone in suit-boot queue up?” he asked.
“India’s prime minister helped turn the black money of the rich into white. He snatched money of the poor, but ensured benefits for the rich,” Gandhi said.
