Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi terming his demonetisation move as a ‘knee-jerk’ decision. Speaking to the media on Tuesday, the Congress vice-presidenti said this move will turn out to be a big scam. “Decision that was taken was not thought through, it was based on one person’s thinking. The big black money players have been allowed to go scot free by PM. Mallaya and Lalit Modi are sitting abroad,” he said.

“Couple of days back, PM was laughing in his speech, then next day he was crying. He should decide what he wants to do,” added Rahul Gandhi. He further said that the decision has resulted in massive inconvenience for the people and it needs to be sorted out as soon as possible. “18 to 20 people died in queues outside banks/ATMs and PM Narendra Modi was laughing. Do you see any black money players in bank lines; its only farmers, govt servants & common man. I am seeing on social media that BJP leaders are holding cash stacks in their hand, where did they get this money from?” he asked.

In a direct attack at the Modi government, Rahul said that the government had alerted BJP people of demonetisation
beforehand. He also said, “I don’t think even Finance Minister knew about demonetisation announcement.”

                    एक बार मालिक और वित्त ायक व सेवक के साथ, दिल्ली घूमने जा रहा था। मालिक घोड़े पर था और सेवक पैदल था। रास्ते में मालिक थक कर सोने लगा। सेवक ने इसी दौरान घोड़े को ठिकाने लगा दिया या बेच दिया और घोड़े के दोनों कान और पूछ काट ली और जमीन पर मिटटी में दबा दी। फिर मालिक को जगाया उठो देखो तुम्हारा घोड़ा जमीन में धंस रहा है। आप पूछ पकड़ कर खीचो, में कान पकड़ कर खीचता हूँ। जब मालिक के हाथ, घोड़े के पूछ और कान लगे तो सेवक बोला मालिक आपने उठने में देर कर दी। अब बिना घोड़े के ही चलना होगा। lt;br/gt; शिक्षा : ऐसा ही काले धन पर सेवक कहेगा कि मालिक आपने 25 करोड़ जनधन अकाउंट क्यों खुलवा दिए?

                      What Shri Rahul hi said is apt.Because he is moving among common people and he himself stood in the queue he is able to understand the difficulties being faced by the common people.He is truely the hope of poor and common people.

                                        I was reading all the leading newspaper for last one week. It's a big step and we all common people of India should support the person who has taken the initiative. If I would be in power, I would hire 100 retired judges and and open crime files of all the politicians and bring them to justice. Show to the people of India what these dirty politicians have done to our country. We should have laws like gulf countries. It's not that easy to change overnight, but he has a team of intelligent people and wait for that time. Young people, wake up and save our country. This is the time, so that your kids and g kids can see better India. Bring these criminal politicians to justice. Show them their face in the mirror. Best of luck to all my Indian brothers and sisters.

                                            Now CROOKS are in action. Government should keep different colors ink for 7 days. IF a person is in line everyday then its from OPPOSITION party. We should support Gov. and report such activity with name and PAN card.
