"Modi ji has destroyed the banking system of the country, that's what I have to say about it. During demonetisation also we were forced to stand in queues as he (Prime Minister Modi) snatched 500-1000 rupee notes from our pockets and put in businessman Nirav Modi's pocket," the Congress president told ANI in an interview.
He also trained a gun at BJP-led Central government's motto 'Ache Din' and raised questiones as to when 'these goods days' are going to arrive.
The citizens in several states of the country, including Delhi, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, and Bihar are facing severe cash crunch and are not able to withdraw cash from some ATMs.
Earlier, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley called the cash crunch as a 'temporary shortage' and assured that the situation will be dealt with quickly.
