After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s masterstroke of demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, thousands of people queued up outside ATMs and banks to exchange and withdraw money. Among them, on November 11, was Rahul Gandhi standing in a queue outside SBI on Parliament Street. Reportedly, he was there to feel the pain of people who are struggling because the demonetisation.
“Poor people are in trouble, I am here to get Rs 4, 000 exchanged. Neither you (reporters) nor your crorepati owners nor the Prime Minister will understand the problems faced by people,” he told the reporters.
Though people also faced trouble because a VIP was standing in queue but many went on a selfie taking spree. He also interacted with people to know what troubles they were facing. Later, he added, “Can you see anybody here who is high and mighty? Only the troubled common people are here. But how does it matter to Modiji?”
Nevertheless, because it’s Gandhi, this act of goodness was unfortunately trolled and in no time, he was trending on Twitter. People can’t stop joking and here are the top 10 tweets on him that people can’t stop sharing.
