Himachal Assembly polls: PM Modi hits out at Indira Gandhi for not carrying out NoteBan

PM Modi in an election rally hit out at the Former PM, Indira Gandhi saying “I had to do it, because Indira Gandhi did not.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while defending the decision on demonetisation. “Burning my effigies will not deter me from carrying out a fight against corruption and black money”. At poll rallies in Himachal Pradesh seeking support for a BJP government with three-fourth majority, he accused former prime minister Indira Gandhi of not going for a note ban when needed and said he would not have had to carry out this big task had she taken the step years ago. Modi said that over 3 lakh companies have shut down after demonetisation and a probe into 5,000 such firms has found a fraud of Rs 4,000 crore while investigation against others was on. He said the Congress is "angry" at demonetisation as it is still feeling its effect and cited it as the reason for the party's "mourning" by giving a public protest call.
