In a joint press conference, Rahul Gandhi and Mamata Banerjee 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.

Rahul once again raked up the issue of Sahara leaks, in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Senior Congress leader Sheila Dikhit’s name have surfaced. “PM should be the first person to say if I am facing allegations then there should be an inquiry. Sheila ji is ready for probe” Rahul Gandhi. “PM Modi says he is fighting corruption but not answering allegations of personal corruption against him,” he said. “Demonetisation has made no impact on blackmoney; it is an attack on financial independence, poor people,” Rahul added. “PM Narendra Modi must explain why demonetisation has been done and what are the benefits of it,” he said.
