The Congress chief unleashed a blistering attack on the government for its demonetisation decision after the RBI report.
The party Chief Rahul Gandhi said that it was not a mistake but a deliberate attack on citizens to help big businesses.
The attack comes after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) revealed that most of the banned cash had returned to the system.
The Congress leader termed the notes ban as nothing less than a huge scam.
The report says only a fraction of the currency – Rs 10720 crore – was left out of the system after the unprecedented move aimed at checking black money and corruption.
The exercise itself had cost the government Rs 8000 crore.
The Prime Minister had done what had not been done in the last 70 years, said Rahul Gandhi.
He also took on the government on the Rafale fighter jet deal, questioning why an aircraft costing around Rs. 520 crore was bought at Rs. 1,600 crore.>
