'Gandhi will gradually be removed from currency notes' (Lead, correcting para one)

IANS  |  Ambala 

Anil Vij, a minister from Haryana, on Saturday sparked a fresh controversy, saying will gradually be removed from currency notes and that Modi is a bigger brand name than Gandhi.

"The day Gandhi came on the rupee, its devaluation started. Gradually, he will be removed from the notes also," Vij said.

However, the minister later withdrew his statement against

The whole controversy started with Modi's picture spinning the charkha donning the cover page of the Khadi Village Industries Commission (KVIC) calendar and diary, instead of the iconic picture of Gandhi weaving Khadi on a simple charkha, wearing his trademark loin cloth.

At a public event in Ambala, Vij adding fuel to the controversy said: "The name of led to fall in the sale of Khadi products. The day came on the rupee, its devaluation started. It's a good decision that Gandhi's photo was removed (from Khadi's calendar) and Modi's photo came."

"After Modi's association with Khadi, there has been 14 per cent increase in the sale of the products. Modi is a bigger brand name than for Khadi," he said.
