Rahul Condemns Modi for Demonetisation
After being aware of the RBI report, Rahul Gandhi has criticised Minister Narendra Modi for the whole demonetization exercise. He also called it a huge scam. He added that with demonetization, Modi promised the end of terror financing, fake currency, and black money and now all that has been failed.
