Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his call for a "cashless economy", AAP today alleged that he has "truly turned the country cashless" as "neither the people posses cash nor do the ATMs".
"Modi is shifting goalposts. Earlier, he gave a call of driving out black money and now he is giving a call of cashless economy," he claimed
"He claimed that fake notes and terror funding will stop due to this decision. But that has not happened. Everyday fake notes are being recovered in large quantities," Pandey alleged.

Mishra, who is also the tourism minister of Delhi, said, "Tourists are saying that they will never come to India.
