New Delhi:

BJP's Delhi unit workers greeted Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi with pro-Modi chants during his visit to city's Sarojini Nagar visit on Thursday.

Rahul Gandhi met a group of street vendors to enquire how Modi government's decision to ban currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 has affected their business.

Rahul reached the market around 8.45pm and interacted with the vendors for nearly half an hour. During his stay, he also interacted with shopkeepers of the area while squatting on the footpath.

The Congress vice-president has dubbed the move to demonetise Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes as a knee-jerk reaction of the government.

Rahul has said while big players involved in black money have been allowed to go scot free, the common man is being harassed. The Congress has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi inside and outside Parliament over the poor implementation of the decision.
