Rahul to take part in black day protest in Surat

To Add Heft To Rahul Gandhi's GST Attack Dr Manmohan Singh In Gujarat

Dr Manmohan Singh's Gujarat visit will propel Rahul Gandhi's attack on GST forward

Gandhi is expected to reach Surat this morning, after which he will have informal meetings with the industry representatives and workers during the day, sources in the Congress said.

Meanwhile, hitting back at the Opposition, Haryana Minister Anil Vij has saiad that only parties "which have black money left with them" will observe November 8, the first anniversary of demonetisation, as "black day".

Minister of State (MoS) for the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region Jitendra Singh on Wednesday, taking a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, said the latter should visit Surat more often as his visit gives Bharatiya Janata Party more support.

Continuing his tirade against the Congress leader, Shah said the grand old party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi has become "Incorrect News Congress".

Slammed the GST roll-out by the incumbent government, Gandhi said, "We were against the implementation of GST because the Government's version was not right".

The conspiracy department of the Congress is in a very active mode, Shah said.

Nand Lal, a former Army man, had become the face of demonetisation a year ago when an image showed him in tears with folded hands while he stood in a long queue to withdraw his money.

The timing of Rahul's participation in the protest in Gujarat is crucial as the state goes to polls next month. Nand Lal has been a distinguished soldier of the Army.

On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi has trained his guns at Prime Minister Modi.

Claiming that the BJP was heading for a landslide victory in a one-sided Himachal elections, he said that party would win two-thirds majority. "But, 125 crore Indians know these carriers of fake news well and have time and again rejected their fake news and fake tears", he said.

The prime minister had announced demonetisation of Rs1,000 and Rs500 notes as a measure to fight black money, corruption, fake currency and terror funding on this day past year.

The BJP and the Congress have been sparring over the note ban issue. Bureaucratic and complex, it had "devastated livelihoods, creating a modern day "Licence Raj", Gandhi wrote.
