Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday Hitting out at the Central government, said that demonetisation was an attack on India’s informal sector which mainly included poor labourers, farmers and small shopkeepers.
His remark came in the second video of his new series on “how the Modi government has destroyed Indian economy” in which he said that there was a hidden motive to waive loans of corporates after taking out money from the unorganised sector.

“Demonetisation was an attack on poor labourers, farmers and small shopkeepers of the country. Demonetisation was an attack on the unorganised sector. On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the decision that currency note of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 will not remain legal tender. The whole of India stood outside banks,” he said.
The Congress leader said that menace of black money circulation has not ended and poor suffered the most due to demonetisation.
जो आर्थिक त्रासदी देश झेल रहा है उस दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण सच्चाई की आज पुष्टि हो जाएगी: भारतीय अर्थव्यवस्था 40 वर्षों में पहली बार भारी मंदी में है।
‘असत्याग्रही’ इसका दोष ईश्वर को दे रहे हैं।

“Who did get the benefit then? India’s biggest billionaires got the benefit. Money was taken out of your pockets and the government used that money to forgive their loans,” he said.
“There was a hidden motive. The motive was to take out money from the unorganised sector. Prime Minister himself said he wants cashless India. If there will be cashless India, then the unorganised sector will be finished. Farmers, labourers, small shopkeepers, small and medium businesses suffered losses. We should identify this attack. And the whole of the country has to fight against it,” he said.
India is reeling under Modi-made disasters:
1. Historic GDP reduction -23.9%
2. Highest Unemployment in 45 yrs
3. 12 Crs job loss
4. Centre not paying States their GST dues
5. Globally highest COVID-19 daily cases and deaths
6. External aggression at our borders

In the first video released on August 31, the former Congress chief alleged that the NDA government has been attacking the informal sector over the past 6 years and asserted that the aim of demonetisation, “wrong” Goods and Services Tax (GST) and lockdown is to destroy this sector.
GDP में ऐतिहासिक गिरावट का एक और बड़ा कारण है- मोदी सरकार का गब्बर सिंह टैक्स (GST)।
इससे बहुत कुछ बर्बाद हुआ जैसे-
▪️लाखों छोटे व्यापार
▪️करोड़ों नौकरियाँ और युवाओं का भविष्य
▪️राज्यों की आर्थिक स्थिति।
GST मतलब आर्थिक सर्वनाश।
