Demonetisation: Rahul Gandhi meets Sarojini Nagar vendors in Delhi

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday met a group of street vendors in the capital's Sarojini Nagar market to enquire how the demonetisation decision has affected their business.
He reached the market around 8.45 pm and interacted with the vendors for nearly half an hour.
During his stay, he also interacted with shopkeepers of the area while squatting on the footpath.
The Congress vice president has dubbed the move to demonetise Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes as a knee jerk reaction of the government.
He has said while big players involved in black money have been allowed to go scot free, the common man is being harassed.
The Congress has attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi inside and outside Parliament over the poor implementation of the decision.
Some BJP supporters have objected to Gandhi's visit and raised slogans in favour of Modi.
Fuel prices have risen not only in India, but elsewhere too. Even if one ignores it, the fact is that state government taxes account for 41.67 per cent of the final petrol price
Amarinder, who was one of the Congress’ powerful regional satraps, also said he had never experienced “this sort of interference ever as a chief minister"
