New Delhi: The Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today again targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of demonetisation and said that the ‘achhe din’ promised by the BJP will come only in 2019 “when Congress comes to power”.

Rahul also blamed Modi and the RSS for “undermining every single institution” of the country in the past two and a half years of the NDA rule.

He was speaking at the Jan Vedna convention of the Congress and while addressing party workers, he said the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh were undermining the constitutional institutions like Reserve Bank of India, judiciary and the Election Commission.

He said the demonetisation move was not RBI’s decision but a “personal decision” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Modiji is the first Prime Minister of India who is being ridiculed across the world… He is jumping from Clean India to surgical strikes to demonetisation.

Gandhi said, “And people are left wondering when will the achhe din (good days) come. Achhe din will come only in 2019 when the Congress comes back to power.”

He added that Modi and the BJP had the habit of asking what the successive Congress governments did in 70 years since Independence.
