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.

Well, he reportedly finally managed to exchange the currency.

        Please ask him to go to his real bank ie Swiss bank.lt;br/gt;Im.sure his foreign currency is still intact and worth a lot more than when it was deposited in Bofors time.lt;br/gt;I.dunno.but probably few 1000 crores i suppose . Or more.lt;br/gt;So no "crorepatis" in.line.lt;br/gt; he thinks all Indians are gullible. unfortunately the vast majority are.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And that Kejri - our homegrown clown. How could Delhiites elect this anti national guy who relies on a Goebbels policy ie just keep.accusing and hope something sticks.lt;br/gt;Im surprised that noone is taking him to court ? Maybe with the way the judicial system works by the time any court case sees the light of day he wud hv retired anyway? Hence his boldness.lt;br/gt;And to.think i was once so supportive of him thinking we finally had a clean honest guy.

          I'm sincerely impressed with Raga about his concern for common man. Hope he performs his morning rituals the way most Indians do in the open to understand the common man's problem. It's discretionary of the media to cover the event though 😜 #swatchbharath

                        Let's be honest. This was no act of goodness as Indian express is trying to make out. He came, along with his security detail of 10-12 commandos, in vehicles that must have cost a few crores, for 4000 rupees? Indian express, not maintaining the same standards of its yesteryears, might have become gullible, but I doubt if the persons standing in the queue were. Just as one appreciates a good scene in a movie but knows the reality is in the acting skills of the actors, the presence of Rahul hi would have been taken with a pinch of salt.

                                Rahul hi is the real leader of the poor . To get a direct experience of their sufferings, he too stood in their queue and got Rs.4000/- exchanged. This is how a real leader and comrade of the suffering cl should be. He likes to have direct experience of their sufferings and share those with them. Usually, he never misses to visit the suicide incidents anywhere in the country. We can expect, that one day he may even try to have the direct experience of the sufferings of a man committing suicide. He is that wise.
