RSS dictates Modi government’s economic reforms, alleges Rahul-1 

Kalburgi: The brain behind the "Note ban" is Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and not Modi government by itself or officials from the finance ministry, alleged Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Note ban is an economic reform carried out by the Modi government to make black money white, chided Rahul.

Interacting with a group of students, experts from diverse fields and businessmen linked to start-ups at the PDA College auditorium here, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley , officials from his ministry had no role in it.

Modi government implemented the note ban based on the directions from RSS, which has key men in every department of the central government to guide the respective departments, he alleged.

Gandhi is on a maiden four-day visit to the southern state after becoming the party president in December and touring in its northern region since Saturday on a "Jan Ashirwad Yatra" for the people's blessings ahead of the assembly poll in the state, due in late April or early May.

During this tour, he has been very critical of Modi government’s economic policies, which according to him are "regressive."
