BJP today slammed Congress for criticizing the note ban decision of the government. Rejecting Rahul Gandhi’s charges on demonetisation, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged the Congress and its leadership are worried after the note ban as their unaccounted money has become junk. He said note ban hit naxal activities and generation of black money.
The spokesperson also rejected the Congress President’s allegations against the government on Rafale aircraft deal. He said Mr Gandhi is repeating unsubstantiated charges which have since been countered by the NDA government.
Earlier, addressing a press conference in New Delhi, Rahul Gandhi alleged that the only objective of note ban was to help certain big corporates. He said demonetisation was not a mistake but, what he described, a deliberate move by the government to help friends. He also demanded constitution of a Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Rafale aircraft deal.
