Taking a swipe at BJP-led NDA government on 5-years of demonetisation, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that note-ban was a planned step by the government in the interests of its friends for which people there is no apology.
"People would have forgiven the government had it been a mistake but demonetisation was intentionally a planned step by the government in the interests of its friends for which there is no apology," Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile another Congress leader and former Rajasthan deputy chief minister Sachin Pilot targeted the central government over demonetisation and said the country is still facing its brunt.
He said the people will not tolerate the government which loots their hard-earned money.
"The country is still facing the brunt of demonetisation by the central government. This unplanned decision worked to destroy the small-medium industry, employment, income and economy of the country," Pilot tweeted.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016, had announced the decision to ban currency notes of denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.
