Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday reached a SBI bank branch at Sansad Marg, New Delhi. The leader stood in queue to withdraw Rs. 4000 from Bank. He slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that the latter won’t understand people’s trouble. Rahul said that he has come to bank to withdraw Rs. 4000. He said: “People are facing trouble, media and PM Modi won’t understand it, that’s why I have come here.” The Congress leader complained that authorities dispersed the line as soon as reached there. “I came here to stand in line, but they dispersed the people,” he said. “You media people and your millionaire bosses won’t uderstand this,” he added.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that people who were present at the bank surrounded him and started taking selfies. He said that why there’s no one in a suit-boot standing there.  “Can you see anyone wearing a suite-boot standing here,” Rahul said.

Earlier,  the Congress vice-president had slammed Prime Minister Modi’s move to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. “Once again Mr Modi shows how little he cares about ordinary people of this country-farmers,small shopkeepers,housewives-all thrown into utter chaos,” Rahul had said. Criticising the decision as anti-poor, Rahul said that “real culprits” have already stashed away their money abroad.

He also slammed Modi for caring little about the farmers, small shopkeepers, housewives. “While the real culprits sit tight on their black money stashed away abroad or in bullion/ real estate.Well done Mr Modi,” he said. He also asked PM Modi to define logic behind replacing Rs. 1,000 notes with Rs 2,000. How is replacing 1000 rs notes with 2000 rs notes going to make black money hoarding a lot harder? #Modilogic,” Rahul tweeted.

PM Modi, taking the nation by surprize, announced on Tuesday night that he has imposed a ban on the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes and that his government would be unveiling a new Rs 500 note as well as a Rs 2,000 note soon. He has given everyone holding these higher denomination notes time to exchange their notes with the new ones at banks and post offices.
