Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today addressed the Jan Akrosh rally against PM Modi's demonetization move in was in Bahraich, UP.
Unfazed by the Prime Minister ridiculing his charge of personal corruption, Rahul Gandhi today stuck to his guns and wanted Narendra Modi to tell what was contained in the "10 packets" allegedly given by the Sahara Group to him when he was the Gujarat Chief Minister.
Rahul also continued to take digs at the PM, claiming he had not actually put any black money hoarders behind bars:
