Rahul Gandhi eyeing to disrupt next Parliament session: Jaitley
New Delhi: Slamming the opposition, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday said at one hand Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi is thinking of the next generation while on the other hand leaders like Rahul Gandhi are leaving no stone unturned to disrupt the next session of Parliament.
"It is a tragedy that a national party like the Congress decided to adopt a political position, opposing technology, change and reforms. It sided with black money friendly status quo," wrote Jaitley in his blog post.
Calling demonetisation a move of courage and stamina, Jaitley said, things are getting better with each passing day.
What else Jaitley said?
- Lakhs of crores, which were floating in the market as loose currency, have now entered the banking system.
- Tax evasion has been considered as neither unethical nor immoral.
- Drop in economic activity on account of the currency squeeze during the remonetisation period would have a transient impact on the economy.
