Demonetisation only harming honest people, says Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi : After Winter Session ended with nothing concrete, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi continued his attack on PM Modi over demonetisation, saying it was not a surgical strike on black money instead "firebombing of 99 per cent honest people".
He remained silent over the personal corruption by PM, he had recently threatened to reveal recently.
The attack from Rahul Gandhi came hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleged Congress of doing party-first politics.
"Narendra Modi got up on November 8 and announced that the money which is in your pocket has now turned into mere paper. This not a surgical strike on black money but it is firebombing of the 99 per cent of honest people of India," Rahul said addressing a rally at Fatorda near Panaji.
"The impact of firebombing was far worse than the atom bomb. Narendra Modi has done similar firebombing through demonetisation and burnt entire India," he said.
He said, "As Modi did not allow me to speak in Parliament, I am speaking at this public meeting."
Rahul assured that his party will fully support Prime Minister if they take even a single step to curb black money.
