Demonetisation is a mega scam, biggest one after independence

Demonetisation is a mega scam, biggest one after independence; Where is the acche din promised by PM: WB CM Mamata Banerjee



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

Rahul Gandhi
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)

Mamata Banerjee
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.

New Delhi, May 22 : Just as all actions and political realignments get fast paced eyeing the 2019 Parliamentary polls, the BJP on Tuesday launched a massive nationwide programme to reach out to the poor and said massive multi-pronged welfare measures are being undertaken by the Modi government to bring about drastic improvement in the conditions of the downtrodden.

Hum gaon ko samasyaon se mukh kar rahen haen…yeh ek naya soch hae (We are improving the conditions of the poor and bringing about drastic changes in the conditions of villages through multi-pronged programmes. This is a new vision itself)," BJP chief Amit Shah told a press conference at party headquarters – his second media interaction within 24 hours and three days since the fall of B S Yeddyurappa government in Karnataka.

He said 21,844 total villages were earmarked when seven nationwide welfare projects including Ujjwala, Saubhagya and Ujjala were launched from April 14 and till May 5, a total 16,850 villages were covered spread over 484 districts. He said the remaining villages in mostly in Karnataka and West Bengal where code of conduct was in force will be covered till next year.

The BJP chief clarified that the developmental measures should not be linked to the Parliamentary election due next year.

He said out of these 16,850 villages, no household is without electricity and no mother or her newborn has been left without vaccination. ‘For the first time, the country is witnessing a new yardstick of development where poor people do not have to queue up for redressal of their grievances but it is the government which is reaching out to them,’ he said.

In this context, Mr Shah said for the next year’s election, irrespective of political stand of various parties, the public mood will be in favour of Narendra Modi in any case.

‘Mahol toh Modi ke liye bana hua hae (Elections mood is set in people for the BJP and Modi). We will win with bigger margin.

Gas was provided under Ujjala Scheme, electricity under Saubhagya yojna, LED bulbs were given under Ujala scheme to the poor, he said. ‘Bank accounts were opened for 20,53,599 families, this is the achievement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,’, he said.

Gram Swaraj Abhiyaan is a unique experiment which was run between April 14 to May 5, this is the first time after Independence that such a programme has been undertaken, Mr Shah said, a day before the swearing-in ceremony takes place in Karnataka with Mr H D Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister.

As many 1,200 officers stayed overnight in villages which were taken in batches, he said.

He asked to play a proactive role in taking the programmes to the people.
