Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's so-called bold decision of demonetisation was actually a "foolish" decision.
Here is what all Rahul Gandhi said on demonetisation:
#PM Narendra Modi's so-called bold decision (#DeMonetisation) was a "foolish" decision
#The responsibility of running the House is with the Govt and Speaker not the Opposition
#The idea behind cashless economy is that a few ppl must get maximum benefits from these transactions, this has damaged the nation
#He (PM Modi) is laughing, having a nice time while the people of the country are suffering
#Lok Sabha mein agar mujhe bolne diya jaye toh main sab bata doonga ki Paytm kaise "PAY TO MODI" hota hai
#PM Modi is running away, if he comes to the House for debate, we won't let him run
#PM's narrative has changed; started by saying it’s against black money, then terrorism, then counterfeit currency and later cashless economy
#This is not a bold decision, it is a foolish decision which has been taken without any due consideration
#It has devastated poor, farmers, daily wage workers. We want to have a discussion. We want a vote, Govt doesn't
The Opposition parties staged a protest against demonstration inside the Parliament building on Thursday and observed a black day as mark of completion of a month of announcement of the demonetisation move. Members of Congress, TMC, Samajwadi Party, NCP and BSP shouted slogans against the Narendra Modi government.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav, Samajwadi Party MP Ram Gopal Yadav too joined the protest to criticise the currency ban move.
