Stepping up his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the government imposed restrictions on deposit of old notes, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the fresh notification show that the Prime Minister’s words carry no weight and that they are hollow.

“RBI is changing rules like the PM changes his clothes,” Rahul tweeted.

“The PM’s words should carry weight. The Prime Minister had assured the nation that you (the people) can deposit your (old) notes till December 30. The Government yesterday changed the rules again. (They have) changed it 125 times… the PM’s words are hollow,” Rahul said.

 

Rahul, who has been attacking Modi fiercely ever since the Prime Minister announced the scrapping of 1,000 and 500 rupee notes, will address a series of public meetings in the days ahead. He addressed a public meeting in Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh on Monday and is slated to hold similar meetings in Mehsana in Gujarat, Bahraich in UP, Almora in Uttarakhand and Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh in the next four days.

Meanwhile, the BJP took strong exception to Rahul’s tweet and warned him that if he carries out personal attacks on Modi, a “Pandora’s box will be opened” against him. “Yesterday he (Rahul) had said a good thing — that it is not in the Congress’s culture to shout ‘murdabad’ slogans against the Prime Minister. Within 24 hours, the DNA of the Congress and the Gandhi family is out. He has forgotten what he said and he (has) started making personal attacks on the Prime Minister,” BJP national secretary Sidharth Nath Singh said.

Watch what else is making news:

“I would warn Rahul Gandhi to desist from launching personal attacks on the Prime Minister, because if that box is open, it will be a Pandora’s box opened against you,” Singh said.

      Poor Mahatma hi. He must be regretting wearing loin cloth with a stick in his hand. Modi must be making decent money from sponsorers and fashion houses.

          Modi never promised to deposit 15 lakhs rupees in your account. shame on your education that you could not comprehend his speech or you are becoming a spin doctor. work for earning instead of expecting free money in your bank account.

            Rahul hi made public statement that he has proof of Modi's corruption that he will expose in the Parliament. Every citizen has a legal obligation to report the matter to police or the court. Rahul hi is violating the legal responsibility.

              PMO should publish PM's photograph officially taken day wise, date wise, time wise , along with cost of each dress to counter Rahul's charge that he is not correct.

                  Perhaps change of clothes is a secret indicator in our neo fascist state..lt;br/gt; And Urjit Patel is Governor because he watches what Modiji wears. He is probably the worst RBI Governor India ever had , one who presided over the dismantling of our currency and banking system. lt;br/gt;Compromising an insutions objectives is the most fundamental form of corruption.
