New Delhi: Congress on Saturday, hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said that his much-awaited New Year's Eve speech was inspid and it has become his character to be in the headline always.
"No deadline, only headline, this has become the move, image and character of the Prime Minister," said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, adding the party again urged him to withdraw the restrictions imposed on withdrawals post demonetisation.
Slamming the Prime Minister for his "disappointing" address, Congress wondered why he did not mention how many "lakhs of crores" of black money the government managed to wipe out through demonetisation in the last 50 days.
Surjewala said demonetisation has paralysed the economy but the Prime Minister in his address did not answer many crucial questions.
"Mr Prime Minister, people wanted to know how many lakhs of crores of black money did you wipe out in the last 50 days? Why didn't you speak about it," he asked.
Surjewala said "We are disappointed with PM's speech as many questions were left unanswered. His decision paralyzed economy; country can't run this way." (Agencies)
