The grand old Congress party on Thursday launched a mocking attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led NDA government on the second anniversary of note ban, which was announced on November 8, 2016. Targeting at Prime Minister Modi on micro blogging site Twitter, Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari stated “coincidence” of the release of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ on the second anniversary of demonetization.
The Congress leader wrote on his Twitter handle, “Is it just a mere coincidence that on #2ndbarsinotebandi Thugs of Hindostan is being released. Bollywood is a very Mahurat savvy Industry to say the least.”
He attacked PM Modi government in a series of tweets. Tewari referred to the announcement by Prime Minister Modi on November 8, 2016 as a ‘Tuglaki Firman’. He also raised the issue of loss of 100 lives, allegedly due to the demonetization.
“On 8 Nov2016 @narendramodi announced Demonetisation alias Notebandi. It was an epic failure.Over 100 people died standing in bank queues. On second Barsi of This TUGLAKI FIRMAN please observe 2 minutes silence for martyrs of this folly,” Tewari said in other tweet.
Rahul Gandhi led Congress party, on its official Twitter handle, alleged that the move of note ban was aimed at favoring “few crony capitalist friends of PM Modi”. The rival party termed it as “a black day for our democracy and our economy”.
“The cost & #DestructionByDemonetisation was endured by every citizen of this country other than few crony capitalist friends of PM Modi. Demonetisation was a black day for our democracy & our economy,” Congress tweeted.
