NEW DELHI: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his demonetisation decision, saying the controversial policy hurt farmers and hit tourism in Himchal Pradesh.
Gandhi at a rally at Paonta Sahib said, “Modi hurt apple growers, farmers and people working in the tourism sector in Himachal Pradesh.”  He later addressed two more rallies at Chamba and Nagrota. He said the note ban was linked to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls this year, and the Prime Minister took the step without thinking.

Gandhi also slammed the PM for job losses due to noteban and GST saying he wanted to see Chinese youngsters take selfies with mobile phones made in India to reverse the current trend of Chinese manufacturers cornering a lareg share of the market. “I am ashamed that China is able to create jobs but not India,” Gandhi said.
