Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday termed demonetisation a money laundering scheme, and raked up the issue of BJP President Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah’s company recording massive turnover after the NDA government came to power. “Demonetisation was implemented suddenly, maybe he did not like the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes. On November 8, the whole country was standing in line… But did you see any big industrialist from Gujarat in the queue outside banks? Did you see anyone coming in a Mercedes car?” Gandhi said at an election rally here.

“Those who ride Mercedes cars, entered the bank from the back door, and got their black money converted,” he said. “This is the reality of demonetisation. The thieves got their black money laundered and you were left standing in queues,” he added. He also raked up the issue of BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah’s company. “Magically, Amit Shah’s son’s company converted Rs 50,000 to Rs 80 crore in three months… While anyone would usually run a profit making venture, the company was shut after three months,” he said.

He added that the Modi government was avoiding holding the Winter Session of Parliament before the Gujarat elections because they were scared of issues like Jay Shah’s company and the Rafale deal being raised.

    Remember all the privileges, advantages, familiarites you are getting today, are the offerings of the nation in acknowledging the overrated and camouflaged sacrifices of your predecessors. You have not earned these. Now you look to be a spoilt child. Entire investments of the public money has been drained out. Don't you think why are you failing. For performance one need some mettle. You don't have that qualification. India is not a place for opportunists. Jamindari has been abolished. Think first why people should allow you to be a candidate for the block president
