Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Friday hit back at Rahul Gandhi following the latter’s statement saying that the demonetisation drive was the biggest scam in Indian history. Naidu also spoke about Gandhi’s comments about the suffering of the people of India and said that lakhs of people had committed suicide during the regime of the Congress. He asked the INC about what they were trying to preach. Naidu then talked about the people’s mandate on the decision and said that the polls all through the nation chose the BJP and so did the TIME magazine internationally. The demonetisation drive is meant to help the poor and curb down black money, how is it wrong, he asked.
Naidu further retaliated on the issue of the debate in the parliament and said that disrupting the House was a childish move. He asked the INC as to what they were protesting against. Earlier today, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi hit out at the Modi government again. Speaking against the demonetisation drive, Gandhi said that the move was the biggest scam in the history of India. He said that if he was allowed to speak in the parliament, it would trigger an earthquake. He then returned to the month-long agenda of the Prime Minister’s absence in the parliament and said that PM Narendra Modi hasn’t been present a discussion/debate on the demonetisation drive, even though the opposition had been attempting to.
He again targetted the PM and said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was travelling all over the country giving speeches but was afraid to attend the Lok Sabha. He then went on to ask about the reason behind the PM’s fear. Earlier the BJP had accused the Congress Vice President of levelling baseless accusations against the PM to stay in the headlines. Earlier, Gandhi had accused the Prime Minister of informing his associates about the demonetisation scheme before it had officially been announced to help they find solutions. Gandhi had also taken shots at the new narrative of the government i.e’ cashless economy and said that Paytm was actually a process of ‘Pay to Modi’ and he would debunk it once he speaks in the parliament.
