Similar news stories created buzz in November last year, when Gandhi stood in a queue at an ATM in Delhi to withdraw Rs 4,000 during demonetisation, when long queues were a common sight. Speaking to reporters then, Congress leader had stated that PM Modi will not understand the troubles of the common man. “People are facing trouble, media and PM Modi won’t understand it, that’s why I have come here.”
