Gandhinagar: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday took the notes ban war to Prime Minister’s home turf Gujarat addressing a rally in Mehsana.
Gandhi, who had recently claimed to be in possession of evidence regarding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal involvement in corruption, attacked the Centre over demonetisation calling it an anti-poor move.
If Narendra Modi ji’s government takes any big or small step to eradicate corruption, Congress party will support them. Demonetisation move was not made against corruption or black money; it was against the honest poor people.
All cash is not black money and all black money is not in cash. This government is anti-poor, anti-dalits. The government has snatched land from tribals in states like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand.
Dalits are being harassed and killed. They live in fear here in Gujarat. Patidars didn’t resort to violence during their protests but their women and children were thrashed.
The Switzerland government has sent names of black money hoarders to PM Modi but he is protecting them. Why don’t you (PM Modi) reveal the names in Parliament? Don’t know why Modiji did not target the 94% of black money but the other 6 per cent, did not target the 1 per cent corrupt but 99 per cent hones people.
