New Delhi: Congress vice-president on Friday described Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation drive as “economic robbery”.
“Note ban is not against black money or corruption, it is an economic robbery,” PTI quoted Gandhi speaking at a public rally in Almora in Uttarakhand.
Earlier, at a jan aakrosh rally in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, Rahul had bit back at Modi for mocking his Wednesday’s speech wherein the Congress vice-president had accused him of having taken money from corporate groups, saying he could make fun of him but needed to answer the charges of personal corruption levelled against him.
