RBI report on demonetisation: Cong urges PM to apologise

RBI report on demonetisation: Cong urges PM to apologise

New Delhi, Aug 31 (UNI) Taking cognisance of the RBI report which stated that 99 per cent of old currency had returned to the banks, Congress today accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of damaging the economy of the country badly and urged him to apologise to the people for taking a very wrong decision. Talking to reporters here, senior Congress leader Anand Sharma said the government had made tall claims about huge amount of fake currency being circulated in the market. However, the RBI report disclosed that the value of fake currency doing rounds was just Rs 41 crore. Demonetisation affected the common man badly, especially those belonging to the lower income group, who lost their jobs and were compelled to stand in serpentine queues to get their own money, the Congress leader alleged. He said Mr Modi had claimed during demonetisation that people were possessing black money worth Rs 3 lakh crore, which turned out to be a big lie. Mr Modi should respect the post he is holding and should not change his statements so very often. UNI XC RJ SW 1734
