Why no "suit-boot" person languishing in line to exchange notes: Rahul's poser to Modi

New Delhi:
Continuing his barbs against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for running a "suit-boot ki sarkar", Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday took an opportunity to pull-up the ruling dispensation over the demonitization of Rs 500 and 1000 rupee notes.

Rahul Gandhi, who arrived in Parliament Street to stand in-line with the people, said that not a single "suit-boot" person is standing in line and only 'aam aadmi' (normal people) have been languishing to exchange the currency notes.

"I am here to stand with them, my people are suffering. Are you seeing any "suit-boot" person standing in line, these are just ordinary people, but Prime Minister Modi remains indifferent to the plight of people," Rahul Gandhi said, standing in queue at the State Bank of India branch on Parliament Street in Delhi.

Rahul, who waited for his turn to withdraw money from the bank, accused the Prime Minister of being apathetic to the people's woes who have been standing in serpentine queues since morning.

Gareeb vyakti ko kasht ho raha hai (The poor are suffering)", he said.

Congress and other opposition parties are criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government in New Delhi for the inconvenience the public is facing by abruptly demonetising the high-value currency notes.
