Senior congress leader Sushil Kumar Shinde along with leader of opposition in the state assembly, Gujarat, Shankersinh Vaghela and Bharatsinh Solanki have been detained by Ahmedabad police during Congress protest against demonetisation on Wednesday.

Senior Congress leaders have planned to gheraoed the Reserve Bank of India offices across the country on Wednesday in protest of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation move. 

Congress party in a statement said, “The Modi government’s and the RBI’s decision to not lift the weekly withdrawal restriction of Rs. 24,000 is treachery. Failure to restore money supply has paralysed India’s economy leading to massive loss of jobs and closure of businesses on a daily basis.”“RBI, instead of playing the role of an independent monetary regulator and a key denominator of economic growth, has become a mere post office, following the diktats of the Modi government like a puppet,” the statement added.
