New Delhi :  

Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the Election Commission cancelled the R K Nagar bypoll over use of money power. The Congress leader asked if PM Modi’s demonestisation drive has achieved the desired results.

"We were told demonetisation has put an end to black money. Was money distributed in R K NAGAR white money?," the former Finance and Home Minister said in a tweet.

The Election Commission on Sunday cancelled the April 12 bypoll to the R K Nagar Assembly constituency in Tamil Nadu, saying the electoral process has been "seriously vitiated" by parties through use of money power.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while announcing the demonestisation decision on November 8, had said that the move would curb blackmoney besides getting other positive results. The bypoll to R K Nagar was necessitated due to the death of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
