strongNew Delhi/strong: Rahul Gandhi today signalled that the cash transfer scheme beginning from the New Year could be the Congress trump card in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections like the farmers loan waiver and NREGA earlier.
Rahul Gandhi said that your money in your hands is definitely a political slogan. We are fully confident that we will move forward with it before 2014, Union Minister Jairam Ramesh told reporters at a specially convened briefing here in AICC.
Ramesh also quoted Gandhi as saying that your money in your hand is an effective instrument of Congress and the government to fight against corruption.
He was addressing the press hours after Gandhi conducted a closed-door special training session for 51 district Congress Presidents and Youth Congress Presidents on the scheme titled as Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) system. It has been hailed by Finance Minister P Chidambaram as a game changer.
