After Prime Minister Narendra Modi today made an appeal to the citizens to embrace internet banking, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia wondered how millions of farmers and labourers could do e- or mobile banking when they can't read or write.

Sisodia put forth his query in form of a tweet that read, "M-banking/e-banking is best. But how can you force millions of farmers, labourers, traders who can't even read or write?"

He also asked PM Modi to check if his MPs and secretaries used mobile and banking/e-banking.

"Modiji! Before forcefully imposing it on millions of farmers, labourers, traders, please check if your 100 MPs are using mobile banking," Sisodia said.

His remark came after Modi on Sunday urged the people to embrace e-banking and mobile banking for cashless transactions.

"Modiji! Do u have 100 Secretaries in your government who use it in daily life? If not, why force millions of farmers, labourers, traders?" Sisodia asked.
