Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday warned that his speech in Parliament on demonetisation move by the Narendra Modi government will cause an 'earthquake'.
Rahul also said, "I want to say that Modi, in the whole of India, has indulged in the biggest scam. I want to talk about that."
The ruling BJP was quick to respond as party spokesperson Sambit Patra wrote on Twitter, "Those who were 'Epicentre' of SCAMS for last 60 years talk of 'Earthquake' today!!".
Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu took a jibe as he said, "May this quake happen when we are not present in parliament."
The Opposition and the ruling BJP has been at loggerheads over a demonetisation debate in Parliament. The Opposition members on Thursday observed a black day to mark the 30 days of demonetisation as they protested at the Parliament premises.
On November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the scrapping of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes. While the move has been hailed by many, it has also led to cash crunch in the country.
