"If I was the Prime Minister, and someone had given me a file with demonetisation written on it, I would have thrown it in the dustbin", exclaimed Gandhi.

During his interaction, Rahul spoke about the assassination of his grandmother Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv and said that it was a price that the family knew they had to pay for taking a stand.

Businessmen of Indian origin who met Congress President Rahul Gandhi in Malaysia said that the Indian community and their interests have been neglected by the present government.

Rahul is on a three day visit to Singapore and Malaysia, seen as efforts to increase his outreach to the NRI community, after the success of his recent visits to the U.S. and Bahrain.

"This is turning out to be yet another mother scam which I think the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government must come clear on", the Congress leader said.

Earlier at the University of California, Berkeley Gandhi had said that Modi had caused "tremendous damage" to India's economy with his "reckless and dangerous" decisions like demonetisation and "hastily-applied" GST.

Replying to the question, she said, "Why not? I don't think that's a privilege", the Congress chief remarked. To remove that bias, giving equality to women is not good enough.

Another TD MP J.C. Diwakar Reddy said the same and added that if the Congress invites, also they will not attend the dinner.

"Met Mr Subramaniam Sathasivam, President of the Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) in Kuala Lumpur".

Originally a part of the AICC until 1946, the MIC has played a major role in the Malaysian Independence Movement. She argued that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's promise of Achhe Din (Good Days) would meet the same fate as the former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee's "Shining India" moment (when the BJP lost the 2004 elections), and urged the Opposition parties to sink their differences for the sake of the country.

He called on Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong yesterday and discussed a wide range of topics related to India-Singapore ties.

Pitroda had earlier successfully organised Rahul Gandhi's visits to the United States and West Asia.
