Congress VP Rahul Gandhi addresses Jan Akrosh Rally in Bahraich:

* PM made fun of my facts

* I request our PM to answer my questions

* Demonetisation was against the poor people not against the black money hoaders.

* It was only the poor who was suffering due to Modiji's note ban move.

* Rich not standing in queue

* Our nation is now divided in 2 parts

* PM made fun of the fact I stated.

* Alleges PM for letting Lalit Modi, Vijay Mallya flee from the nation.

* PM targets farmers, poor, labourer and backward class.

* Alleges PM Modi of giving Mallya a candy worth 1200 cr.

* In reply to Modi, Rahul quotes Ghalib: Har ek baat pe kahte ho tum ki tu kya hai...

* PM Modi stood with the industralists.

* Demonetisation is not a surgical trike on black money. It was fire bombing on people of the country.

*  PM joked that the cash in our pocket is now just worthless paper...this money was the hard earned cash of the poor.

* PM had promised 2cr jobs but all that he has done is shut down factories. Unemployment is at a  60 year high because of Demonetisation.

*  PM snatched MNREGA for poor.

* If a farmer doesnt repay his loan; he is branded a thief.. If an industrialist doenst pay back a loan he is called a defaulter..

* .PM should target these industrialist, but he is not doing anything to them because they helped him become PM.

* Note ban waive off loans of rich industralists.

* PM Modi is a super event planner.
