While Congress plans to corner the Narendra Modi government in Parliament on the demonetisation issue, its vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday took stock of banking and ATM services in Delhi post Centre's announcement to ban old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 on November 8.According to ANI, the Congress vice president visited city's Jahangirpuri, Inderlok and Zakira areas and interacted with the people standing in queues outside ATM machines.
It has been 13 days since the Narendra Modi government banned high denomination currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 to tame the black money menace and to fight corruption.
The move led to chaos across the country as people queued up for hours to get valid currency notes to meet their daily expenses.
It is the second time in the week when the Congress leader met people in the Capital in this regard.
On November 17, Rahul visited Sarojini Nagar market and met a group of street vendors to enquire how Modi government's currency ban move has affected their business.
However, the Congress leader was left red-faced after he was greeted with pro-Modi chants by the BJP workers.
