Modi has wage war against poor, not poverty: Rahul Gandhi 

Rubbishing the idea of cashless economy, the Congress MP from Amethi said the note-ban was conceptualised with an ulterior motive to help the industrialists. "No rich person is looking perplexed with the move while the poor man has been running from pillar to post to get his own money,'' he pointed out making it clear that demonetisation move has backfired on Bharatiya Janata Party

Guatam Budh Nagar (Noida): Firing yet another salvo at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for demonetisation move, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has alleged that the former had launched war with the poor which remained the worst-hit section since November 8 last.

"Contrary to his pledge to eradicate poverty, Modi chose the wrong way to target poor section by announcing demonetisation on November 8 last in order to benefit the affluent industrial class,'' he said while interactiing with senior citizens and farmers at grain market of Dadri here on Tuesday.

Rubbishing the idea of cashless economy, the Congress MP from Amethi said the note-ban was conceptualised with an ulterior motive to help the industrialists. "No rich person is looking perplexed with the move while the poor man has been running from pillar to post to get his own money,'' he pointed out making it clear that demonetisation move has backfired on Bharatiya Janata Party government owing to ill intentions behind it.

What else Rahul said:

  • In the manner, poor and farmer class is made to stand in bank queues, it is apparent that Modi has no heart for this class.
  • People have not been able to withdraw their own money.
  • Even the benefits of cashless are reaching to affluent class.
  • Clearly, Prime Minister Modi wanted to help the industrialists and upper class as much as possible.
  • The money of poor is deliberately kept locked in the bank accounts.
  • The PM who talks about Rs15 lakh to be deposited in poor man's account is not allowing paltry amounts to be withdrawn.
  • It is nothing short of the BJP government's war against poor instead of poverty.
  • In fact, all the black money has already been converted into white while the poor suffers.
  • The present government at the Centre has disbursed loans to the tune of Rs eight lakh crore among 10 top industrialists.
