Rahul Gandhi talks to people in queues outside banks, ATMs in Delhi

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was seen on Monday speaking to people standing in the queues outside ATMs and banks in Delhi.

Gandhi asked people about the problems faced and called on them to voice their indignation against the Centre’s move to scrap Rs 500/1000 notes, saying that demonetisation has become a hassle for the common man.

Gandhi interacted with people in queues at Jahangirpuri, Inderlok and Zakira area.

The Congress leader’s visit comes in the wake of a huddle by the Opposition in both Houses of Parliament on Monday at 9:30am to discuss fresh strategy for countering the Centre’s move to demonetise high value currency notes.

Both the Houses of Parliament have been witnessing a stormy debate over demonetisation in the first three days of the winter session.

In Lok Sabha, the Congress and some other opposition parties demanded a discussion on demonetisation under Rule 56 — which entails voting — through an adjournment motion that implies suspension of all other business.

The opposition parties insisted on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s presence while opposing demonetisation.
