Local BJP leaders, meanwhile said that the programme of Congress president to inaugurate a five-km-long road built under the PMGSY had been put on hold.

The Congress president, who began his three-day visit to his Lok Sabha constituency Amethi and to neighbouring Rae Bareli represented by his mother Sonia Gandhi this morning, refused to take the question on the Hyderabad court verdict. To back the party's demand, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra cited a telegram sourced from WikiLeaks which he said, was about an 9-year-old conversation between Rahul Gandhi and then USA ambassador Timothy Roemer. He cited an American Embassy note of 2005, released by Wikileaks in which Jaitley argued that Hindu nationalism will always be a talking point for the BJP and characterised this as an "opportunistic issue". "Modiji has destroyed the banking system". The Congress accused BJP leaders of being the "protectors" and lawyers of "absconders and fraudsters" and demanded the resignation of union ministers Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj, besides Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Overall there is more than the adequate currency in circulation and also available with the Banks.

With ATMs suddenly running dry in several states, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the "terror" of demonetisation has returned to haunt the country, slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for what he described as destroying India's banking system.

Buhari however admitted that they may be some delay in securing their release following setbacks in talks with the terrorists . In May 2016 the Nigerian army confirms the first of the schoolgirls has been found.

Rahul Gandhi further added, "PM parliament main khade hone se darte hain".

There has been a meteoric rise in the complaints filed by people about the shortage of cash in the ATMs across the country. We respect the feelings of those people who have not got the ticket. "Rs 45,000 crore have been given to his (Modi's) industrialist friend", he said, referring to the Indo-French inter-governmental pact inked in September 2016 for buying 36 off-the-shelf Dassault Rafale twin-engine fighters for the Indian Air Force.
