Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi have been battling it out over demonetisation and there have been a series of attacks and counter-attacks over the issue. 

A day after Rahul accused PM Modi of taking Rs 40 crore as bribe from Sahara before becoming the Prime Minister, the latter delivered a counter-reply.

Both the leaders took their battle to poll-bound Uttar Pradesh and chose the platform of rallies to launch attack on each other.

What PM Modi said:

"They have a youth leader; he is learning how to speak. In 2009, you couldn't even tell what is in this packet. Now we are finding out...Since the time he has learnt how to speak, I am the happiest."

"There would have been an earthquake had he not spoken... good that he has started speaking, we now know that there's no chance of an earthquake."

“The commotion created in parliament is like the ‘cover fire’ that Pakistan uses to ensure terrorists infiltrate into India. Similarly, the ruckus in parliament lets cheats get away.” 

What Rahul Gandhi said:

"The PM didn't answer my questions but ridiculed me instead. Modiji, mock me all you want, but these are questions of the youth and the poor."

"Har ek baat pe kehte ho ki tu kya hai, tumhi kaho ke ye andaaze guftagu kya hai (For everything I say, you ask, 'who are you?', tell me what kind of manner of speech is this.)"

"We are with the NDA on all issues of corruption but the demonetisation has only been done to help the one per cent rich of the country who are friends with the prime minister."
