It has been a month since that fateful day when India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi decided that 86% of the cash in the economy was illegal. Since then, the entire nation has been put through great hardships, whose cost in terms of human lives has been significant, said Congress Vice President, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday.
“We were told the Government was prepared. We were told that we would have to bear with the Government for only a few days. But, as the extent of the pain across the nation became apparent, PM Modi began to change the rules around demonetization. It has been a month and there is still not enough money in the banks. Rules have been changed more than 120 times,” Rahul Gandhi said.
He stated that demonetization is not a bold decision, but it is a foolish decision which has been taken without any due consideration. It has devastated the poor, farmers and daily wage workers. We want to have a discussion (in Parliament). We want a vote (in Parliament) but the Modi government doesn’t, Rahul Gandhi said.
Highlighting how the Prime Minister has been constantly changing the goal posts, Rahul Gandhi said, “PM started off by saying, I am against black money. After black money he went to terrorists. Then he moved to counterfeit money and then to cashless economy. So he is running and we will catch him inside the House. He won’t be able to run inside the house.”
