Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that government’s demonetisation decision was not against corruption or black money but against the poor of the country.
Addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur, Gandhi said the Prime Minister firebombed the poor with note ban.
Below are the highlights of his speech:
