RaGa: Earthquake will come if allowed to speak on demonetisation
New Delhi: Accusing the Centre of running away from debate on demonetisation, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday warned that an earthquake will come if he is allowed to speak on the note ban in the Parliament.
"The government is running away from debate. If they allow me to speak over demonetisation, you will see an earthquake will come," Gandhi told the reporters.
"This is the biggest scam in the history of India. I want to speak in Lok Sabha. I will tell everything there," added Gandhi, pointing towards Modi government's decision of scrapping high denomination notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 on the night of November 8.
The government took the decision aiming to wipe out black money from the economy and root out terrorist funding through counterfeit currency, but Rahul Gandhi claimed a few days earlier that it was a "foolish" move.
The row over demonetisation has consistently been hindering the functioning of both houses of the Parliament in the ongoing winter session. The Opposition has been demanding Prime Minister's presence in the Parliament for debate over demonetisation.
"PM is addressing rallies throughout the country but is scared of coming to Lok Sabha. Why is he afraid?" asked Gandhi.
