Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday took a potshot at the former prime minister Manmohan Singh for his disagreement over demonetisation, saying that by raising objections, the latter is exposing his own misdeeds.

“When I said things can be managed without cash in the pocket, the former prime minister said how can this be implemented in a country where 50 per cent of the people are poor? Now tell me, if he is showing me his report card or mine? This legacy of poor has been provided by whom? I am happy that he has shown his own report card,” said Prime Minister Modi while speaking at the foundation ceremony of Mahamana Pt Madan Mohan Malviya Cancer Centre in Varanasi.

The Prime Minister then shifted his focus towards former finance minister P Chidambaram and sarcastically said the latter believes a cashless economy cannot come into form as more than 50 percent of the Indian villages do not have electricity, adding that this was doings of the former regime.
