Demonetisation 'epic failure' of Modi govt: Congress chief Kharge

New Delhi/UNI: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday launched a fresh attack at the BJP-led government at the Centre over 2016 demonetisation and termed it "epic failure" of the ruling dispensation.

Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the same, Kharge said: "Demonetisation was promised to free the country of black money. But it destroyed businesses and ruined jobs.

"PM is yet to acknowledge this epic failure that led to the fall of the economy," he said in a tweet.

Kharge also claimed that six years after the "masterstroke" the cash available in public is 72 percent higher than that in 2016.
