Noting that only eight of the 16 parties which had joined hands in Parliament against the Modi government over note ban were present today, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad took potshots at Rahul, saying it was increasingly becoming clear that he lacked “maturity and gravitas” and that he would soon be left alone to “hurl abuses without substance”. Prasad, adressing a press conference said opposition’s exercise was “laughable” as, he said, those who were behind scams like 2G spectrum, Saradha chit fund and coal block allocations had come together to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On Sahara leaks, the leader further said that Rahul is putting baseless corruption allegations on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Bebuniyad aarop lagana theek nahi hai, Rahul Gandhi jawab dein 2G pe kya kehna hai,coal scam pe kya kehna hai, (Rahul Gandhi should answers what he has to say on 2G scam, coal scam,)” said Prasad.
Earlier, in a joint presser, Rahul Gandhi and Mamata Banerjee had attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over demonetisation of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes. Rahul Gandhi said that demonetisation has given the birth to an entirely new market for exchange of black money, and that it has brought no difference to level of corruption in the country. He added that scheme has hit the common man worst. “This is a fearless government, they do not care about anything. 30 Dec is about to come and the situation is the same,” said Rahul Gandhi
