NEW DELHI: Union Minister for Human Resources Development Prakash Javadekar has sought to counter the “earthquake” comment of the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, saying that the more Gandhi speaks the more his party would be exposed. 

“Rahul Gandhi should rename All India Congress Committee as All India Currency Conduit,” Javdekar said during a media briefing in a reference to purported sting operations by a TV channel in which some leaders from rival parties offered to change old currency notes for a commission

“The sting has exposed the true face of these parties who have been opposing demonetisation, besides disrupting the proceedings of both the Houses of Parliament,” said Javadekar. 

 While “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is working to change the country, the opposition is changing notes for a commission,” he added.

The minister said the claim of Gandhi not being allowed to speak in the Parliament “could not be a bigger lie”.

Furthermore, he said that even as the leaders of the opposition parties stood by the Mahatma Gandhi statue on the Parliament premises, they were unmasked in the public eye when they opened a “money exchange centre”. The minister demanded that the Congress, Samajwadi Party, BSP and NCP apologize to the nation.
