Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday appealed to his party workers to help people standing in queues at banks and ATMs due to the demonetization move.

“It is my appeal to all the Congress workers that they should help people in queues outside banks, especially senior citizens and the ones finding it difficult to fill the form,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

“Apart from this, if you come across any poor people having problems in depositing the money, offer complete help,” he said.

After the government demonetized Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on Tuesday night, the Congress leader had himself joined a queue at a bank on Friday to get the demonetized currency notes exchanged.

        This is bad news. His congress goons may manufacture some serious trouble while in the lines. Hopefully there is no violence.

            Rahul is becoming a great and mature leader. But feku is loaded with evil ideology.

              Had all those who ruled from 1947 onwards not encouraged synchophancy, corruption scams, black money, hawala transactions, there was no necessity for the present situation. We are suffering and paying the cost.

                How to identify ,if the person offering help is a congress worker and whether being a congress worker ,bank /other public there will allow him to enter the bank without standing in the queue stead opposition parties should meet the PM/FM and suggest and ask them to adopt some measures ,by which people are not troubled and harred and are in a position to transact with the banks in normal way for their requirement of currency etc.
