Gandhi also attacked the Goods and Services Tax (GST), and accused the Prime Minister of converting anger created by joblessness into communal hatred. Bureaucratic and complex, it had "devastated livelihoods, creating a modern day "Licence Raj", Gandhi wrote.

On the first anniversary of demonetisation, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi dubbed the note ban as a tragedy.

"Demonetisation is a tragedy".

The volte face by Lal gave ammo to the BJP to hit back at its critics and especially the Congress. "Rahul Gandhi has tweeted against demonetisation by using a pictire of Nand Lal but he has stated on record that he supports Modiji", Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Wednesday. Suggesting that India is in a crucial phase of growth, which needs to be supported by large-scale job creation, Mr Gandhi stated "official figures" which suggest that "China now creates on average 50,000 jobs every single day; India under Mr Modi manages only 500". He has chosen to hide behind a shallow, hate-filled political narrative. "They represent India's innovative capabilities and have the skills, knowledge and understanding to take on China's manufacturing machine". "We said the tax should be capped at 18 per cent but they did not listen to us", Gandhi said. "But instead of helping them grow, the Modi government has fatally wounded them with demonetisation and a flawed new tax", he wrote.

It comes after a government backbencher broke ranks to support sending refugees to New Zealand to help end the stand-off on Manus Island.

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has been fully vocal about criticisms on the economy, the ruling government, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's policies.

Rahul's remarks came after Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the Congress accepted defeat in Himachal Pradesh and will not return to power here in near future.

Rahul tweeted a Hindi couplet that alluded to the "suffering" the poor went through as a result of demonetisation.

According to him, the reasons for the rise of "elected autocrats, such as Mr Modi" are two: the increased internet connectivity that is increasing transparency and destroying the institutions that were information silos and the dominance of China in the global job market. It has ruined the lives of millions of hard working Indians.
