Note ban "biggest scam"; Congress asks Modi to apologise
August 31, 2017  18:00
The Congress today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should apologise for demonetisation, describing it as the country's "biggest scam" which had inflicted "misery" on the people and dealt a "body blow" to the economy.

None of the measures that Modi had promised with the ban on high currency notes, put into effect in November last year, had been realised, Congress senior spokesperson Anand Sharma said.

"Demonetisation is the biggest scam, as the government has helped the wrong people legitimise their illegitimate money through it and has betrayed the poor people of the country with false promises," he said. He stressed it was the prime minister's "direct responsibility as it was his personal decision".
