Demonetisation anniversary: Rahul to lead Surat stir

Amit Shah's campaign in Surat is set to clash with Rahul Gandhi's rally in the city
He also said the new tax regime of GST, the second blow to Indian economy, was "hastily imposed" and "poorly conceptualised".
In a scathing attack on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday described him as a "tragedy manufacturer" and condemned him for "misleading" the nation on demonetisation.
Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said it was "unfair" on Gandhi's part to use the photo of a former soldier for his "nefarious design" and cited Lal's remarks made in an interview favouring the note ban decision.
Reiterating the Congress's critique that demonetisation caused the economy to slow down, Gandhi said although Modi had claimed his aim to be wiping out corruption, "twelve months on the only thing he has wiped out is confidence in our once booming economy". Suggesting that India is in a crucial phase of growth, which needs to be supported by large-scale job creation, Mr Gandhi stated "official figures" which suggest that "China now creates on average 50,000 jobs every single day; India under Mr Modi manages only 500".
"Anger might have brought Mr Modi to power but it will never create jobs or fix India's institutions", said the article titled "Modi's reforms have robbed India of its economic prowess". "They represent India's innovative capabilities and have the skills, knowledge and understanding to take on China's manufacturing machine". "But instead of helping them grow, the Modi government has fatally wounded them with demonetisation and a flawed new tax", he wrote. "We said the tax should be capped at 18 per cent but they did not listen to us", Gandhi said.
Rahul also tweeted a couplet in Hindi that called for attention towards pains suffered by poor in the aftermath of demonetisation.
"Only those parties will observe "black day" on November 8 that have black money left with them", Vij said.
"China's global monopoly on blue collar jobs is a fundamental challenge to other states".
He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had already said that loopholes and shortcomings in the GST would be removed and the process is on. It has ruined the lives of millions of hard-working Indians.
