New Delhi:Vice President of Congress Party, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said Demonetization is a foolish decision. The opposition party observed a ‘Black Day’ in Parliament premises yesterday marking one month of the announcement of note bank.
Rahul said Prime Minster Narendra Modi’s decision is a foolish decision and has devastated the country. Mr. Gandhi accused Modi of shying away from having a discussion on this issue in the Parliament and said that opposition parties will not let him run away from both houses, where everything will become clear once the PM takes part in the debate.

Other than Congress who called it a black day, other party leaders including TMC, CPI, CPM, JD (U), Samajwadi joined the protest wearing a black band on their arms.

Gandhi said ‘The Prime Minister took this so-called bold decision. The bold decision can also be a foolish decision. And this was a foolish decision, it has devastated the country. More than 100 people have died. Farmers, fishermen, daily wage earners have been hit hard.’
He went on and said that ‘He is laughing. He is having a nice time, while the people of the country are suffering. So, he is switching from one issue to another. And we are going to catch him inside the House. He is not going to be able to run inside the House.’
Talking about the PM’s cashless economy, Gandhi said ‘there is this concept of PayTM. Pay to Modi, that’s the idea behind the cashless economy. That is few people should get maximum benefit from cash transactions.’
