Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday criticised the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government’s demonetisation policy, dubbing it as the root cause of poverty and unemployment in the country today. Addressing a rally in Raichur, Karnataka, Rahul said, “On November 8, Narendra Modi made all the cash we had in our bags defunct. The poor farmers used to buy seeds and fertilisers using that money.
