Rahul attacked Narendra Modi over demonetisation and questioned him over the Indian economy.
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and accused him of weakening institutions like the Reserve Bank on India (RBI).
Addressing Congress' 'Jan Vedna' meeting against note ban, Rahul said "achhe din" (good days) will come when Congress comes back to power at the Centre in 2019. “BJP, RSS and Narendra Modi have weakened institutions like RBI. People of country are wondering when are 'Acche din going to come'. I'll tell them it will come when Congress comes to power again,” said Rahul Gandhi addressing the Congress National Convention in the national capital.
"We respected RBI's independence. It is the financial bedrock of India and now it is is being ridiculed. People in RSS and BJP are under the impression that nobody else's opinion matters but theirs," he said here. He continued his attack on the PM and said that demonetisation was a ‘personal decision’ made by Modi. “Today I read in newspaper that PM said he will transform India. But PM needs to ask himself why suddenly auto sales have fallen.”
Quoting figures, Rahul said automobiles sale has dropped by 60% in the country. "We have gone back 16 years, the backbone of India's economy has been broken" he added. Rahul said that it is for the first time that India's Prime Minister is being "ridiculed world over" for taking such an "ill-conceived" decision. "For the fist time India's Prime Minister is being ridiculed the world over..never before every single economist of any repute said that Prime Minister has taken an ill conceived decision," Rahul said.
