Demonetisation Only Wiped Out Confidence In Our Once Booming Economy: Rahul Gandhi

To Add Heft To Rahul Gandhi's GST Attack Dr Manmohan Singh In Gujarat Dr Manmohan Singh's Gujarat visit will propel Rahul Gandhi's attack on GST forward

Earlier today, Rahul Gandhi had used the same image with a couplet in Urdu to target the government on one year of demonetisation: "Ek aansu bhi hukumat ke liye khatra hai".

While the Congress and several other opposition parties are observing a "black day" to mark the anniversary of the government's demonetisation move, the BJP-led government in the centre is celebrating the "success" of the notes ban decision, and dedicating November 8 as "Anti-Black Money Day".

"The rise of democratically elected autocrats, such as Mr Modi, is driven by two factors: a massive increase in connectivity and its profound impact on institutions; and, second, China's dominance of the global job market", Rahul Gandhi said.

He said, "This is not a political thing, this is not between the Congress and the BJP".

However, Modi is fanning communal hatred cashing in on the anger created by joblessness and lack of economic opportunity, Gandhi said.

Shah said the Congress had insulted six crore Gujaratis.

The picture of the 80-year-old Nand Lal breaking down for not being able to withdraw his pension after waiting for hours at an SBI branch in Gurugram went viral last year.

The minister also took a dig at Gandhi over his criticism of Gujarat's "historic" development under the BJP and his tweet of his dog "Pidi". Nand Lal has been a distinguished soldier of the Army. "Gurugram's Nand Lal has exposed Rahul Gandhi's lies". He has retired. He has publicly supported Narendra Modi and demonetisation. "But, 125 crore Indians know these carriers of fake news well and have time and again rejected their fake news and fake tears", he said. The party highlighted the pain of a "poor man" in a queue in Karnataka and that person turned out to be a rich Congress leader whose premises were raided by government agencies later, the minister claimed.

The prime minister had announced demonetisation of Rs1,000 and Rs500 notes as a measure to fight black money, corruption, fake currency and terror funding on this day a year ago.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had yesterday termed demonetisation as "organised loot" and "legalised plunder".
