Demonetisation-GST affected traders, farmers the most: Rahul

New Delhi, July 20: Congress President Rahul Gandhi lashed out at the Narendra Modi government saying decisions including GST and demonetisation have affected the small-scale businessmen and farmers the most.

In his fiery speech during no-confidence motion debate, Gandhi attacked the ruling government on host of issues ranging from  Demonetisation to the false promises made to people.

Speaking on Demonetisation, he said “I don’t know what happened… where you got the message… but at 8 pm you decided to fight against black money and initiated the process of demonetisation. Maybe you didn’t understand that farmers and the poor transact in cash.

The Congress shared his experience of Surat and stated: When I was in Surat, farmers, labourers, small traders told me, demonetisation imposed by PM Modi has caused them the most hurt.”

“The GST was brought by the Congress. But You opposed it when you were Gujarat Chief Minister. We wanted one GST, with petrol and diesel in it, and the country to have one tax with the least disruption”.

But the PM Modi’s GST has five taxes, killing small traders and destroying crores of people”, he added.

“I don’t know what happened… where you got the message… but at 8 pm you decided to act against black money and initiated the process of demonetisation. Maybe you didn’t understand that farmers and the poor transact in cash. In Surat, people told me that PM Modi has caused them the most hurt.”
