Congress’ Anand Sharma too slammed Modi for his ‘insensitive’ comments targetting people standing in queues to withdraw their money.
He told ANI, “Is he saying that those lakhs of ordinary public, government employees standing in queues are all scamsters?”
Swaraj India’s founder and Supreme Court lawyer, Prashant Bhushan, said, “Corrupt cronies like Ambani/Adani untouched;BJP forewarned; Small ppl queuing up for days to get money for food. And PM mocks them as fools!” (sic)
In what could be termed as an insensitive comment, Modi on Sunday had said that those involved in big scams were now being made to stand in queues to exchange Rs 4,000.
He had also broken down in public and said that certain forces were up against him and he feared for his life.
Speaking for the first time since returning from Japan, Modi had said, “I know the forces up against me, they may not let me live,they may ruin me because their loot of 70 years is in trouble, I am prepared.”
Modi had left India hours after making demonetisation announcement scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.
