NEW DELHI: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday alleged that former Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian has distanced himself from the decision to junk high-value currency notes, but he should have resigned on the issue and those guilty of the “huge scam” will be punished.
The Congress chief also questioned why former chief economic adviser Arvind Subramanian did not resign when he “disagreed” with the demonetisation decision and said former defence minister Manohar Parrikar did the same in the Rafale deal.
Mr Gandhi said tweeted, “Demo like Rafale was a crime against India & a huge scam. Parrikar distanced himself from Rafale to save his skin. Mr Subramanian is doing the same with Demo. I wonder why he didn’t resign when he disagreed so much? Don’t worry India, the guilty will be investigated and punished.”
