"M-banking/e-banking is best. But how can you force millions of farmers, labourers, traders who can't even read or write?" Sisodia asked in a tweet.

He also asked Modi to check if his MPs and secretaries used mobile and banking/e-banking.

"Modiji! Before forcefully imposing it on millions of farmers, labourers, traders, please check if your 100 MPs are using mobile banking," Sisodia said.

His remark came after Modi on Sunday urged the people to embrace e-banking and mobile banking for cashless transactions.

"Modiji! Do u have 100 Secretaries in your government who use it in daily life? If not, why force millions of farmers, labourers, traders?" Sisodia asked.
