Rahul Gandhi: Demonetisation legalised black money, GST hurt small businesses


Attacking Narendra Modi’s government on how to implement the GST and on demonetization, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi called the former “catastrophic” for small and medium-sized businesses and the second to legalize black money for ” biggest thieves in the country “.

Interacting with entrepreneurs, intellectuals and businessmen at this shopping center in Gujarat on Tuesday, he said anger is rising among the people of the country because of “job shortages” and companies are slowing down and could become uncontrollable, according to one video posted by the party on Wednesday. Responding to the questions, he admitted that the mistakes made by Congress were a reason for Narendra Modi to lead the BJP to a resounding victory in the Lok Sabha elections in 2014, but said the party was improving its shortcomings.

He also said he did not believe in slogans like “Modi-mukt Bharat”, but noted that the prime minister has been trapped in a “chakarvayu” as he has raised expectations bar, but is unable to meet them, since “do not believe in someone and not listen to anyone “. He said 30,000 young people were entering the job market every day, but only 450 jobs were being created, while China created 40,000 job opportunities every day.

“If the situation does not change, anger among people will increase and after a certain level, it will get out of control,” he warned. Gandhi said that while half of the problems with the goods and services tax were “structural”, the other half was created by the way it was applied. Gandhi, who is touring the state before the polls later this year, said Congress will try to live up to people’s expectations.

“If Modi became prime minister, it was also due to deficiencies in Congress. Our effort is to improve our mistakes. Our vision outlined in 2004 began to fail in 2012. There are many reasons for Modi’s power to come to power. with your expectations, “he said.
