NEW DELHI: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is addressing a press conference along with Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee as they jointly attack the government over notes ban.
Here are the highlights
This demonetisation has done absolutely nothing against corruption. What it has done instead, is to leave people without any money.
This is been a complete failure on part of the government.
The Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) must answer on this disaster… he must answer on unemployment.
The PM is not answering anything on allegations of corruption in which he is directly involved (Sahara diaries)
This demonetisation is the biggest scam in independent India.
Modi ji said we will have ache din… Is this what he meant by ache din? People are troubled. He has destroyed the banking system. 50 days are nearly over… what will happen now? In these 50 days, our country has gone back 20 years.
If the restrictions cannot be lifted after the 50th day, then why did you commit to 50 days?
If the restrictions are not lifted after 50 days? Since it was your assurance, will you take responsibility and resign?
In the effort to go cashless, you have ended up being faceless.
Rajiv Gandhi did a wonderful job of bringing mobile phones and computers to India… But your (BJP’s) claim of doing things everything overnight is good only from a marketing point of view. The government must lead the people, not fool them.
Modi ji, We await your resignation. If you don’t, the people will throw you out of power.
We are going to make a common minimum programme on demonetisation and corruption.
We will discuss and talk about this together and have a joint programme.
