NEW DELHI: BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday took on Rahul Gandhi, who tweeted a picture of an anguished ex-serviceman to pan demonetisation, saying people will no longer be misled by such falsity and cited the former soldier’s remarks to media supporting the note-ban decision.

The top leaders of the Congress and the BJP battled it out on social media platform Twitter on the first anniversary of demonetisation with Rahul Gandhi firing the first shot.

The Congress vice-president posted a couplet and tagged a last year’s viral picture of Nand Lal, the septuagenarian former Army soldier, which showed him in tears as he waited for his turn to withdraw currency notes following the demonetisation decision.

Seeking to embarrass Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah tagged a fresh interview of Nand Lal who, the report said, has come out in support of the note ban decision.
