New Delhi:

Taking pot-shots at the Narendra Modi led BJP government at the centre, the Congress vice president today alleged that both 
Modi and BJP are busy dividing the society in order to cling on to power. 

Addressing the people at a rally Rahul said that it is only the Congress ideology that can take the BJP and RSS head on. Terming 
the demonetisation as a total flop the Gandhi scion said, “Entire India knows that it turned the black money of India’s ‘thieves’ 
to white.”  

“First they said demonetisation would result in checking terror. Then they said demonetisation would check black money. The 
reality is that everyone in India knows that 90 per cent of black money is in real estate, gold,” he said.

“We don’t know the reason why Modi was after the cash of farmers, poor labourers and housewives,” he said.

Taking a dig at the RBI it took almost a year to announce that 99 per cent of the scrapped currency had been returned to the coffers.

“We had asked in Parliament about the amount of black money unearthed in the demonetisation exercise. It took RBI a year to say that 99 per cent of old money came back in the coffers,” the Congress leader said.

According to the Congress vice president, BJP and Modi engaged in dividing society. “In Haryana they pit Jat vs non Jat and in Maharashtra they create a Maratha vs non Maratha divide. Their only goal is that BJP and RSS should be in power,” Gandhi alleged.

“They speak of fight against corruption but they ‘purchase’ people (legislators) in Goa and Manipur and also try to purchase people in Gujarat.” 


“They (BJP and RSS) will fight one or two elections. After that it will be the Congress which will be in power.”
