Currency Ban: Jaitley slams Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Jan 8 (IBNS): Two months after the government on Nov 8 announced banning of old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday attacked Rahul Gandhi over attacking the move and said the Congress vice-president only thought about disrupting the next session of Parliament while Prime Minister Narendra Modi planned about technology driven cleaner economy.

" There was a marked difference in the approach of the Prime Minister and his opponents," Jaitley said in his blog post.

"The Prime Minister was being futuristic, and thinking of a more modern, technology driven cleaner economy.  He is now speaking of cleaning the political funding systems," he said.

"His opponents want a cash dominated, cash generating and cash exchange system to continue," Jaitley said. 

"The difference between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi was clear - the Prime Minister was thinking of the next generation while Rahul Gandhi was only looking at how to disrupt the next Session of Parliament,” the Union Finance Minister said.
