Rahul Gandhi turns up at SBI in Parliament Street; becomes selfie magnet
As the citizens across the country are lined up outside ATMs and banks, waiting to exchange or withdraw money, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Friday evening in an apparent show of solidarity joined them at State Bank of India’s parliament street branch in the national capital standing in the queue to exchange Rs 4000.
Rahul told media persons that he had come there as he himself wanted to exchange money. “If the common man is facing problems, so can I,” said Rahul.
He said that ordinary people are in trouble and are facing problem but the government is not bothered about it. Rahul slammed PM Modi saying, “Kya apko yaha koi suit boot pehne dikh raha hai, yaha par sab aam log hai jo pareshan hai, par Modi ji ko isse kya farak padta hai.”
Chaos has continued on the second day across the country as people have been struggling to deposit or exchange Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes – which the government abruptly put out of circulation on Tuesday
