Would have thrown demonetisation file in dustbin if I were PM: Rahul Gandhi

Kuala Lumpur: In yet another attack on the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that demonetisation was “not a good” initiative as it caused huge damage to the country's economy. Rahul Gandhi also said that he would have thrown the demonetisation proposal in the “dustbin” if he were the Prime Minister. Taking everyone by surprise with his reply, Rahul said that he would not have rolled out demonetisation had he been in the government. ''If I was the Prime Minister, and someone had given me a file with demonetisation written on it, I would have thrown it in the dustbin,' he said. '...out through the door, and into the junkyard. That is what I think should be done with demonetisation,' the young Congress chief said.Rahul made these remarks while interacting with the Indian diaspora in Malaysia. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on November 8, 2016, announced that Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes would cease to be legal tender.
