Rahul Gandhi once again attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government for its decision to demonetise Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes. “Demonetisation decision taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was against country ninety-nine percent poor,”
Calling PM Narendra Modi pro-rich, Rahul said that the PM is working for country’s 1 per cent rich people. He said that PM is not ready to waive off farmers’ loan, however he’s lenient on defaulters like Mallya. “PM Modi gave a Rs 1200 crore coffee toffee to Vijay Mallya after November 8,” Rahul Gandhi said. “People from these(rich) families go to America, China in their ships,” he said. “50 families own a big portion of India’s wealth, this is on the courtesy of PM Narendra Modi,” said Rahul Gandhi. “When I asked PM to wave-off farmers’ loan, he didn’t answer me, he didn’t utter a single word,” he added.
