Manmohan Singh: Modi has betrayed Gujaratis

Senior Congress leader Manmohan Singh on Thursday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He criticised the demonetisation move and alleged that Modi has betrayed the trust of Gujaratis.



He said, “The people of Rajkot and Gujarat trusted the Prime Minister and believed in the policy of demonetisation in the hope that their sacrifice would benefit India. Their faith and hopes have been shattered. Modiji has betrayed the trust that Gujaratis had reposed in him.”


The former Prime Minister added, “99 per cent of the demonetised currency came back to the banks. It is clear that a lot of black money got converted to white and corruption continues to flourish. One immediate impact of demonetisation has been on job sector. Therefore, demonetisation was an uninformed attack and a disastrous decision for our economy.”


“We must demand the government to release all the documents related to demonetisation in public domain for scrutiny”, he said.
