Instead of declaring 500 & 1000 Rs notes illegal, Govt should replace Mahatma Gandhi's photo with Rahul Gandhi's to change valuation to 0.— The Viral Fever (@TheViralFever) November 8, 2016
Government couldn't get Rahul Gandhi's photo on 500 & 1000 rs note. So, they converted the entire note to Rahul Gandhi. Useless.— Cricket Bakchod (@AllTimeBakchod) November 8, 2016
