In a tweet, he claimed State Bank of India was levying the charge in order to recover the losses incurred by it due to write-off of debts of corporates and asked the Prime Minister to prevent it from 'overburdening' its customers.

"Humbly urging @PMOIndia to take up #SaveSBIChallenge to prevent @TheOfficialSBI from overburdening customers with additional monthly service charge fee besides minimum charge in order to recover the losses incurred due to debt write-off for corporates and cronies," Chandy said in a tweet.

Chandy was recently appointed the AICC general secretary.

As Narendra Modi accepted an online fitness challenge from Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had dared the Prime Minister in May this year for a "fuel challenge", asking him to reduce the spiralling fuel prices in the country or face a nationwide stir by his party.
