Rahul said, “You (PM Modi) said that after the note ban corrupt people are standing in line outside the bank. I want to tell you that those in the queue are not corrupt but the poor people of India. Nobody in suit boot is standing in the queue.”
Reacting to Modi’s speech in Varanasi where he laughed off the corruption charges made by the Congress vice president against him, Gandhi said you can make fun of me, “but the youth of this country has questions fro you.”
Weeks after claiming that he has proof of the personal corruption of the prime minister, the Congress leader had on Wednesday alleged that illegal money was paid to Modi by Sahara when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.
