'Demonetisation 'biggest scam' of Narendra Modi government'

TRANS ASIA NEWS
New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday accused the government of not allowing him to speak in Parliament on demonetisation, which he dubbed as the "biggest scam", and said he would reveal in the House what was behind the move to scrap high denomination notes.
Speaking to reporters outside Parliament, Gandhi said that his party wants debate on demonetisation so that the truth can come to the fore, but the government is running away from it.
The Congress Vice President said that when he gets a chance to speak about demonetisation in the House, "the Prime Minister will not be able to even sit there".

"The Prime Minister is giving speeches across the country but is afraid of coming to the Lok Sabha and is not willing to sit there," Gandhi said and asked what could be the reason for this "nervousness".
"Demonetisation is the biggest scam in the history of India. I want to speak in Lok Sabha. I will tell everything there," Gandhi said and accused the government of not allowing him to speak in the House on the issue.Demonetisation 'biggest scam' of Narendra Modi government, claims Rahul Gandhi
The Congress leader was speaking after his party said in Lok Sabha that it was ready to debate the issue but the government demanded that it should first apologise to the people of the country for stalling Parliament proceedings for 16 days, leading to uproar and adjournment of the House.
Gandhi said initially the Government spoke about black-money, then moved to counterfeit currency and then again to a cashless society campaign.
