Though, there are people who probably agreed with what Gandhi said, but, Twitterati did not seem like they were in a forgiving mood and decided to troll him left, right and centre for his almost a day-late reaction.

(Source: Twitter, ANI)

The country has been busy counting notes and going haywire after PM Narendra Modi’s epic announcement on November 8 that the currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations will be discontinued and declared illegal starting midnight.

About more than 12 hours after the declaration, when the people in the country were slowly coming in terms with PM’s move to curb black money hoarding and other illegal activities, Rahul Gandhi, finally decided to react to the news! And he was not in favour of what Modi had decided – no surprises there.

In a series of tweets, this is what the Congress vice-president said: “Once again MrModi shows hw little he cares abt ordinary ppl of this country-farmers,small shopkeepers,housewives-all thrown into utter chaos” and did not stop at that. He followed it with: “While the real culprits sit tight on their black money stashed away abroad or in bullion/ real estate.Well done Mr Modi”. If you thought that was about it, then it wasn’t. He also had a question for “Mr Modi”. He asked how is replacing Rs 1,000 notes with Rs 2,000 notes going to make black money hoarding harder, with the hashtag #Modilogic.

Though, there are people who probably will agree with what Gandhi said, but, Twitterati did not seem like they were in a forgiving mood and decided to troll him left, right and centre for his almost a day-late reaction.

    Govt should have announced a 5% rebate on all credit and debit card transactions for a year subject to a limit per card per month.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Will change the habits of the people. The increased tax revenue will be more than the cost of this program.

                  As expected and always will be congress opposing BJP. This proves that congress does not work in the principle to improve the welfare of the country. In the past 10 years congress was the government, apart from our then prime minister Mr.Manmohan singh being silent what else achievement did congress do. Rahul hi should answer this before criticizing any developments by the BJP.

                    How can his mother continue to allow him to open his mouth? Can he ever say one word that shows his IQ is above that of a moron? And how can people like Diggy Singh, Jairam Ramesh and others of their ilk continue to follow him? Even Shashi Tharoor stays in Congress and he who had ambitions for UN secretary?

                      Only if Rahul hi would have expressed, whatever obvious and very general that even a 9th Grader feels , as a conceren rather than an accusation...it would have looked graceful.. but that is not Pappu...His EQ seems to be equal to his IQ.

                        Chaos? There's no chaos, RG. People stood for hours in line for Jio sim; surely they can (and will) stand in queue for half-an-hour. It's a bold step, and those who criticize must be those who are severely affected by this.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All we'have to do is to exchange just 4000/- for 100-rupee notes, and deposit the rest in bank account. We can withdraw them later. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If someone is wondering WHICH BANK -- Indian or Swiss -- then, sorry Sir, Mr Modi cannot help them

                              It is a bold move and game changer that corrupt congies cant digest. Common public is very happy. Rahul needs to come out of mother's lap and see the world if he is not blind. At least it will help him in next life, in this life he is beyond hope.lt;br/gt;And Indian express, reminding Rahul hi of his inadequacies is NOT trolling. He is imposed on us - a joker just because of dynasty. Regarding 2000 denomination note, you can see yourself the prices of commodities so you will need some 2000 denomination notes. The basic point is that government has choked the black money created over decades. Modi is trying to create a cashless society in the long run and the amount of 2000 notes under circulation will be kept under constant check. Got ur answers?

                                  such a wonderful and daring step by the central govt. public seems to suprt it by and large. it is obviously very difficult for lot of political parties to digest. How can they accept that the PM has taken such a historic and effective step to curb black money and corruption? it actually takes the wind out of the sail of some political leaders who wanted us to believe that it is they and only they who can and will act against black money and corruption. They cannot tolerate such an effective step taken by the PM, robbing them off their cause.

                                    Grow up Rahul hi. You sound like a fool when you open your mouth. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I salute Modiji. Finally India has an Ironman who is not scared to take decisions.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I as a common man am very happy about the demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000. I do not have black money and pay my taxes. No doubt it will take a few days to adjust. It is people like you and your ilk who are worried what to do with your bundles of Rs. 500/- and Rs. 1000/- notes.

                                      HE DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE UNDERSTOOD THINGS. THERE IS NO DEMONETIZATION. THESE POOR FARMERS AND SHOP KEEPERS CAN DEPOSIT THEIR CRORES IN CASH TO THEIR BANK ACCOUNT. of course, IF HE DEPOSITS THROUGH THEM, RETURN WILL TAKE TIME.
