NEW DELHI: Rahul Gandhi Wednesday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi for declaring Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes invalid, wondering as to how bringing in the new Rs 2000 note is going to make black money hoarding a lot harder.
In remarks laced with sarcasm, the Congress Vice President said "well done Mr Modi".
"Real culprits" who have stashed black money are "sitting tight" while lives of farmers, small shopkeepers and housewives "have been thrown in utter chaos," he said in a series of tweets.
"Once again Mr Modi shows hw little he cares abt ordinary ppl of this country-farmers, small shopkeepers, housewives-all thrown into utter chaos".
"While the real culprits sit tight on their black money stashed away abroad or in bullion/ real estate. Well done Mr Modi"
"One Q for the PM: How is replacing 1000 rs notes with 2000 rs notes going to make black money hoarding a lot harder? #Modilogic", he said on the micro-blogging site.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi last night announced that high denomination notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will no longer be legal tender to fight against black money and corruption.
