Demonetisation a tragedy, PM Modi’s thoughtless act destroyed millions of lives: Rahul Gandhi

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi describe the decision to implement the demonisation by the Narendra Modi-led central government as ‘PM’s thoughtless act’ and called it no less than ‘tragedy’.
NEW DELHI: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi describe the decision to implement the demonisation by the Narendra Modi-led central government as ‘PM’s thoughtless act’ and called it no less than ‘tragedy’.
The Gandhi took to his Twitter on Wednesday to share a post that also said that millions of lives and livelihood have been destroyed due to the last year’s decision to scrap high-value currency notes.
“Demonetisation is a tragedy. We stand with millions of honest Indians, whose lives & livelihoods were destroyed by PM’s thoughtless act,” Rahul’s tweet said.
Rahul also tweeted a couplet in Hindi that called for attention towards pains suffered by poor in the aftermath of demonetisation.
While the Narendra Modi government is celebrating the anniversary as ‘Anti-Black Money Day’, Congress and several other opposition parties have decided to mark the day as ‘Black Day’.
Rahul will be joining the Opposition-sponsored ”Black Day” protest in Surat to mark the first anniversary of the Centre’s much-criticised demonetisation move on Wednesday.
Later in the day, he will participate in a candle-light vigil on the ‘Black Day’ near Vivekanand Statue in Surat’s Chowk Bazar area after holding a formal meeting with traders.
Gandhi’s decision to take part in the protest in Gujarat is significant as the state is going to polls next month.
