New Delhi, Nov 21: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, hitting out at prime minister Narendra Modi said: "The biggest economic decision in India's history was taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi without consulting anybody except for 3-4 people."
Gandhi, who has been critical of the demonetisation move by the government, said that Modi does not consult with his Cabinet and does what he wants to do. "The prime minister doesn't seem to be interested in talking to people," he added.
Gandhi, who interacted with people on Monday when he visited a few ATMs in Delhi, said that the people were facing a lot of problems.
"I visited ATMs in morning and spoke to people who told me people with a lot of money are getting a back door entry to banks." "The goverment is insensitive to people. Instead of focussing on common man, the PM is focussing on bullet trains," he added.
On PM's remark that the country will come out like gold after this exercise, theGandhi asked, "For whom? "and added "I feel the treasuries of the PM's own 15 or 20 people's will be filled up and their loans will be waived. Poor people those who are in the queue will only suffer losses."
Asked why opposition is not ready for discussion, he, said "We are going to discuss. We are ready for discussion."
Gandhi went on to say that the government was indifferent to farmers. Gandhi has been critical of the government after Narendra Modi announced that Rs 500 and 1,000 notes will not be legal tender.
He had said that the demonetisation move will turn out to be a big scam.
