Rahul Gandhi said that decision like demonetisation was taken without asking Chief Economic Advisor and Parliament which caused tremendous damage to the economy.
Admitting to the fact that the Congress is not in its best of health, Rahul Gandhi said, "Around 2012, arrogance crept into Congress party and we stopped having conversations with people."
Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi is on his two-week visit to the US during which he will interact with global thinkers and political leaders, and address overseas Indians as part of an outreach initiative by his party.
In his first engagement, Gandhi today addressed students of the prestigious University of California, Barkley on India at 70: Reflections on the Path Forward, in which he will offer his reflections on contemporary India and the path forward for the world's largest democracy.
During his trip to the US, he said, Gandhi will also engage with the Indian diaspora with the purpose of making them a part in India's development.
