vice-president on Sunday continued his tirade against Prime Minister over and said during the note ban all the hoarders turned their into white.

Addressing a rally in Banaskantha of poll-bound Gujarat, Rahul said, "During Modi ji's note ban all the hoarders in India converted all their into white."

Earlier in the day, the scion had cornered Modi for favouring few top businessmen and ignoring the small traders.

Rahul, who is on the second day of the Navsarjan Yatra, began his election campaign from Banaskantha.

He will address a series of public meetings covering Danta, Palanpur, Mota, Deesa, Wadinath Temple, Thara, Totana, Roda, Kansada Darwaja and Patan.

Meanwhile, taking to Twitter, Rahul also demanded to scrap on essential commodities, bringing petrol, diesel, gas cylinders under the ambit and fix a uniform rate, not more than 18 per cent.

The political parties have been campaigning vigorously and not leaving a single opportunity to attack each other verbally in the light of the forthcoming assembly elections in Gujarat.
