Congress was in Dhritrashtra mode for 10 years against corruption: BJP on Rahul Gandhi’s demonetisation jibe

Countering Rahul Gandhi BJP spokesperson Dr Sambit Patra quipped that he has seen the Congress president Rahul Gandhi alighting from his luxurious car worth Rs 4 crores to withdraw his money from the ATM

Addressing a rally in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, Congress President Rahul Gandhi went on his rhetorics where he asked the audience if they have seen any rich and corrupt person getting down from their luxurious cars and standing in the ATM queue to withdraw money. He added that only poor and underprivileged were targeted by the demonetisation move while the rich and wealthy escaped unscathed.

Countering Rahul Gandhi, BJP spokesperson Dr Sambit Patra, while addressing the media, quipped that he has seen the Congress president Rahul Gandhi alighting from his luxurious car worth Rs 4 crores to withdraw his money from the ATMs.

He alleged that for 10 long years in the government, Congress was in Dhritrashtra mode against these corrupt shell companies, turning a blind eye against them but as soon as they were hurt from the demonetisation move, Rahul Gandhi started shedding tears for them.

Extolling demonetisation’s benefits, Patra said that it was a positive move towards formalisation of the economy which was hitherto largely informal in nature. The move significantly augmented the tax base and there was a marked advancement of Digitalisation of the economy after demonetisation.

Patra asserted that over 2 lakh shell companies that existed during the 10 years Congress was at the centre from 2004 to 2014 were closed down immediately after demonetisation. “The Naxalites were worst hit by demonetisation but those who view them as ‘revolutionaries’ will certainly not like demonetisation owing to its disastrous ramifications on Naxals”, he quipped. He even mentioned that demonetisation triggered the biggest ever surrender of Naxals.

Earlier during the day, Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally at Chhattisgarh had said that the Congress was busy supporting those ‘Urban Maoists’ who sit in their luxury homes while the Adivasis suffer. Chhattisgarh goes to elections in the first phase on 12th November where most of the districts are Naxal-affected.
