Demonetisation: Rahul Gandhi terms PM Modi 'democratically elected dictator'

Demonetisation: Rahul Gandhi terms PM Modi 'democratically elected dictator'

Terming demonetisation a "tragedy", Gandhi, whose party is today observing "black day" on the anniversary of the decision, tweeted a last year's photograph of Nand Lal in which the septuagenarian former army soldier appeared anguished as he stood in a queue to withdraw currency after the note ban. He said, "Surat is the place which can compete with China and has been doing it. Jobs will either come to India or China".

Minister of State (MoS) for the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region Jitendra Singh on Wednesday, taking a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, said the latter should visit Surat more often as his visit gives Bharatiya Janata Party more support. Ahead of assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, Rahul has been cornering the Prime Minister over demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST). "But instead of helping them grow, the Modi government has fatally wounded them with demonetisation and a flawed new tax", Gandhi added. The Congress has become "incorrect news Congress" and the "biggest source of false news", the BJP chief said.

Referring to China's economic strides since the 1970s, Gandhi wrote that country creates on average 50,000 jobs every day, but "India under Mr Modi manages only 500".

The home minister claimed that the governments efforts to curb terror funding had reduced naxal activities by 52 per cent and said that a BJP government in Himachal would ensure 33 per cent reservation for women in police. You please do not kill our industries and businesses. We urgently need to empower these networks and connect them to capital and technology. But this GST implemented by Modiji, which has five layers, will not work. GST or Gabbar Singh Tax has unleashed tax terrorism.

For the Congress and Rahul Gandhi, he said, the poor are the means behind which they hide their corrupt, elite and upper class nature.

Meanwhile, hitting back at the Opposition, Haryana Minister Anil Vij has saiad that only parties "which have black money left with them" will observe November 8, the first anniversary of demonetisation, as "black day".
