New Delhi [India], Dec. 19 (ANI): Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi's demonetisation drive, Union Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal on Monday said it will transform the country in a better way. Talking to ANI, Meghwal said it is the duty of the government to bring economical and social equality in the country. "Who will bring the economical and social equality in this country? It is the duty of the government. After so many terms as a government they (Congress) couldn't get economical and social equality in this country. With the help of demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tried to bring these," he said. "They cannot digest the facts that how can a normal man like Modi ji can do so much for the country. Modi ji will bring reform and will transform the country. We have to change the way of life. Is it so important to work in cash? I believe that people will benefit with this. Even Congress somehow believes that it is a good step," he added. Responding to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's corruption charges against Prime Minister Modi, Meghwal said, "Rahul Gandhi says he was not allowed to speak in the Parliament. Like kharge ji even he could have spoken in the Parliament. He has nothing to say. His allegations are not true." Meanwhile, Gandhi is set to hold a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Jaunpur today, to address demonetisation woes. Gandhi led a united opposition in a focused attack on the government all through the winter session of parliament over the notes ban and has now vowed to make it a key election issue in UP. Also, Prime Minister Modi will address a public rally in Kanpur this afternoon as political action shifts from parliament to Uttar Pradesh where crucial elections will be held soon. (ANI)
