UP Election 2017: Addressing a rally in Aligarh, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday mimicked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of demonetisation. In his humor-filled mimicry, Rahul said, “Mitron, maatao, kisano, majdooro, aapke jeb mein imaandari ka jo paisa hai, apke khoon paseene ka jo paisa hai, wo paisa ab kagaz hai kagaz, ha ha ha ha…. (Friends, mothers, farmers, workers your hard earned money, the cash you have in your pockets, are worthless paper now). He added, Haste hue hamare pradhan mantri kehte hai, Hindustan ke jeb mein jo paisa hai wo kagaz hai… ha ha (Our Prime Minister laughs and says, money in Hindustan’s pocket is now just paper).” The effect on the crowd was instant as they started laughing at this effort at mimicry by Gandhi.

Rahul Gandhi has made demonetisation and its effects, primarily on farmers, as his election theme for Uttar Pradesh. He also said that demonetisation led common man stand in queues for hours but no corrupt person was seen standing and waiting for long hours in the queues at banks and ATMs. ” Koi ek wyakti, suit-boot wala, chamakti hui gaadi wala, hazaar crore ke ghar wala, private hawaijahaaz wala, dikha tha us line mein?(Did even a single person in suit, or with shiny watch, or the person with house worth thousand crore, or with a private plane, was seen standing in the queue?), ” Rahul questioned.

Earlier, on Wednesday Gandhi kept targeting PM Modi and his government over the issue of note ban. While addressing a rally at Khurja he said that demonetisation was not aimed at curbing corruption, but helping it. “The Modi government did this so that money come back to banks and then they could wipe out non-performing assets of the banks. This BJP government is not for the common man, but to help the 50 industrialists and corporates,” he said.
