New Delhi, Nov 08 (ANI): As demonetisation completes an year, both Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party are on a war of words, while one is trying to prove the step wrong and the other giving facts to prove it as a decision to compliment the economy. Recently, a post of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s twitter handle came into light, which showed an ex-serviceman crying while waiting in demonetisation queue. "Ek aansu bhi hukumat ke liye khatra hai. Tumne dekha nahin aankhon ka samundar hona” he tweeted. Shortly after Gandhi’s tweet, ANI crew went to Nand Lal’s residence to take his views on the controversial decision. Contrary to Gandhi’s tweet, Nand Lal said the decision has benefited the country as the extremists were making a lot of noise. The iconic photo highlighted the chaos, despair and confusion of the people following the demonetisation.
