Rahul Gandhi has said that the idea of note ban comes from RSS. He said,””Do you know where the idea of note bandi (note ban) came from? Do you know who gave the idea of note bandi to the Prime Minister of India? It was not RBI, it was not Arun Jaitley (Finance Minister), it was not an officer in the Finance Ministry”.
He said,”It was a particular ideologue of the RSS.Now you imagine the RSS places an idea into the Prime Minister’s mind and the Prime Minister launches that idea”. Suggesting it was the design of RSS and BJP, who are convinced that it is only they who know everything and are taking such “disastrous” decisions, he said even a child would say it was not a good idea to “destroy” Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes that allowed corrupt to convert black money into white.
Congress President was speaking during an interaction with professionals and business community on the last day of his four day ‘Janashirvad Yatra’, in the northern Karnataka region here. Gandhi also alleged that ministers in the NDA government were not operating independently, as RSS men were stationed in each ministry. “In every single Ministry in India, national level there is an OSD from RSS working with the Minister…In every Ministry in India, there is a man from RSS who works with the Minister. The Minister is not operating on his own,” he said.
