Note ban deliberate move to help crony capitalists: Rahul

New Delhi:Congress president Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of implementing the note ban to help a handful of crony capitalist friends to convert black money into white.
In a blistering attack on the PM, Gandhi said demonetisation was not a mistake; it was PM’s deliberate move to hurt people and help India’s top industrialists who have huge non-performing assets.
“People apologise when they make mistakes. PM did not make any mistake. He demonetised the currency deliberately. His target was to help India’s biggest crony capitalists get back the money they have been spending in marketing him. The PM wanted to see how to help industrialists because of whom he appears on the television daily. Crony capitalists market the PM; the PM snatches people’s money and gives it to these capitalists. It is simple,” Gandhi said answering queries on whether he wanted the PM to say sorry for the failure of note ban.
