RAJNANDGAON, Nov 10: Congress president Rahul Gandhi held a mega road show on Friday in Rajnandgaon, the constituency of Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh, three days ahead of the first phase of assembly polls on November 12.
Addressing a public meeting after the roadshow, he criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale fighter jet deal and a sudden demonetisation of a bulk of the currency in circulation in November 2016 and said he no longer talks about corruption.
"Neither Rs 15 lakh was deposited in bank accounts of people nor two crore youths got employment during the four-and-a-half-year rule of the Modi government. The Modi government made people stand in queues during demonetisation," he said.
"Did you ever see Nirav Modi, Vijay Mallya and Mehul Choksi (all accused of committing financial frauds) standing in queues during note-bandi," he asked the people attending the rally and they replied "no". "Modi earlier used to speak about corruption, but he does not do so now," Gandhi alleged.    -PTI
