Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of deliberately implementing demonetization to help his capitalist friends.
Rahul Gandhi in his press conference said, “The objective of Demonetisation was very clear. It was to help PM Modi’s friends. Demonetisation was not a mistake, it was a deliberate move.”
Giving a reference of the RBI report which stated that 99.30 percent of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes banned by PM Modi during demonetisation have returned to the banking system. Rahul Said, “The RBI annual report proves that all his objectives failed. PM Narendra Modi must answer to the people of this country why this decision was taken and wrecked the economy, something no PM did in the last 70 years.”
“I want to state the real reason of Demonetisation to everyone. PM Modi’s 10-15 capitalist friends were defaulters. He helped them to turn their black money into white,” Rahul added.
Accusing Amit Shah of depositing huge amount at the time of demonetisation, Rahul Said, “We have seen in the case of Gujarat’s Cooperative Banks, of which Amit Shah is a Director, where Rs. 700Cr worth of money was deposited.”
Further attacking PM Modi and again putting a question on Rafale deal, Rahul said, “There are clear facts in Rafale case. Anil Ambani has ₹45000Cr debt. He formed the company 10 days before the deal. What is the deal between Anil Ambani and PM Modi?”
Asking for the creation of a Joint Parliamentary Committee, Rahul said, “I have no problem in creating a Joint Parliamentary Committee, where all facts can be disclosed.”
Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi, BJP National Spokesperson Sambit Patra said, that Rahul Gandhi is criticizing demonetisation only because Congress was adversely affected by the currency ban. Sambit accused Gandhi family of looting the public money and said that the reason Congress is creating an issue out if it, because their looted money have now become worthless.
Patra further added that the people of the country have not only rejected the Congress party but also Rahul Gandhi and let people be the Judge of it.
