Watch what else is in the news
Escalating the attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over demonetisation, Rahul had on Saturday accused him of dividing the country between the rich and the poor and dubbed the move as “firebombing” on cash economy and farmers and labourers.
Addressing a public rally in Himachal Pradesh’ Dharamsala, the Congress vice-president said the Prime Minister with his demonetisation move has removed the “hat” of Himachal Pradesh as it has hit hard the state’s horticulture, agriculture and tourism sectors.
Rahul said the colour of a banknote is decided by whether it is in the hands of the honest or the dishonest.
Rahul also accused Prime Minister Modi of snatching away land of tribal people in Himachal Pradesh the same way BJP Governments in Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh had done.
