New Delhi [India], Dec. 24(ANI): Congress vice- president Rahul Gandhi will address a rally in Dharamsala on Saturday. This is the first visit of Gandhi after the Congress reversal in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. While addressing a rally in Almora yesterday, Gandhi escalated his attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that demonetisation is economic robbery. "The Congress Party wants to obliterate corruption from India. The Congress will support any step against corruption. But notes ban wasn't against black money or corruption, it was economic robbery," Gandhi said. The Congress vice-president also used the occasion to reach out to the farmers and labourers. "Prime Minister Modi hasn't listened to the farmers, but he has forgiven 1.40 lakh crore in loans to 15 rich people but not farmers," said Gandhi. Gandhi alleged that the 'suit boot ki Sarkar' was in its bid to help its "rich friends" snatching the rights of the poor. "Under NDA, one percent of Indians have 60 percent of the wealth. 99 percent Indians don't have black money. 94 percent of the black money is in Swiss Bank accounts, gold and land. Just six percent of black money is in cash. I don't know why Prime Minister Modi has made this six percent black money his target, not the 94 percent," said Gandhi. (ANI)
