New Delhi: Congress yesterday lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi terming him "insensitive" for his remarks in the 'Mann ki Baat' radio programme saying he talked of moving towards a cashless society when a very small population of the country used plastic money.
“The Prime Minister, in his programme yesterday, said the youth and tech-savvy should help others in moving towards a cashless society. But, he must remember what percentage of the people uses credit and debit cards.
”People are dying due the impact of demonetisation and he makes such remarks. Modi is insensitive,” Congress leader Anand Sharma told a gathering of Youth Congress workers and NSUI members in front of the IYC office on Raisina Road here, on the occasion of ‘Jan Aakrosh Diwas’ called by the opposition parties.
“Modiji doesn’t do ‘Mann Ki Baat’. He only likes listening to himself and doing what he pleases,” he alleged.
Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala attacked the Prime Minister saying he must also “try to listen to the voices of those whose family members had died due to the impact of demonetisation”.
