Demonetisation Only Wiped Out Confidence In Our Once Booming Economy: Rahul Gandhi

Demonetisation has "ruined" the lives of millions of hard-working Indians, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi has said in an article written for Financial Times exactly a year since demonetisation was announced.

"Overnight 86 per cent of the value of India's currency was withdrawn from circulation", said Rahul Gandhi. Ahead of assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, Rahul has been cornering the Prime Minister over demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

Slammed the GST roll-out by the incumbent government, Gandhi said, "We were against the implementation of GST because the Government's version was not right".
