Note ban is economic loot, not fight against corruption: Rahul slams Modi

He also repeated the charge that top corporate houses paid crores to Narendra Modi when he was Gujarat chief minister.

Gandhi said that Modi received crores from the Sahara Group and demanded an independent probe into the matter.

He also said that "not all cash is black money, all black money is not cash".

Though Mr Rahul Gandhi did not give any detail, the sensational charge had a battery of Union Ministers mocking the congress leader, calling him desperate and frustrated.

Opec deal hinged on 2am phone call, very nearly failed
USA crude production has risen by over 3 per cent this year to 8.7 million bpd, as its drillers have aggressively slashed costs. The increased price is welcome, Drangmeister said, but will be most beneficial to the state if it lasts a few months.

Gandhi had recently said he knew about "personal corruption" by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was "terrified" of the information, but he wasn't being allowed by the government to speak about it in Parliament.

A response to the Prime Minister's statements by Gandhi is expected at the rally today. He said if he spoke in Parliament, there would be "an quake and Modi would not be able to sit".

Modi taunted Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, saying now everyone had seen what the "quake" was all about. The PM called Rahul him a "packet" who would have caused an quake if he didn't speak.

Also, in the past three rallies, he has been repeating that PM Modi took the bribe from Sahara and Birla.

Modi's cancellation of high-value banknotes worth 86 percent of the cash in circulation last month has caused disruption to the daily lives of people and businesses and could affect elections in key swing states next year.

Demonetisation move wasn't made against corruption or black money; it was against the honest poor people. The Congress scion went on to term demonetization as the 'biggest scam' of the country. The inclusion of couplets by renowned poets in his speech and using them to attack PM Modi as per the situation is admirable.

Gandhi, who is visiting various parts of the country to talk about demonetisation, said Wednesday that if the central government took any step to eradicate corruption, his party would stand in full support.
