The #AadhaarVerdict is actually symptomatic of the principal battle being waged between the new BJP led by Modi and the old, corrupt establishment of Congress and its cronies. Congress and its ecosystem of compromised 'activists' tried all tricks to derail Aadhaar but failed. 1/5 If we wean away the various cloaks worn by activists, propped up by Congress, the reason for their vicious anti-Aadhar stand becomes clear. Aadhaar stops the gravy train of loot that greased the ecosystem from top to bottom, benefiting cronies at each level. 2/5 #AadhaarVerdict

Significant. 2/10

RBI has come with an excellent paper on the benefits of #Demonetisation - with undeniable facts and data and not rhetoric that has been offered by newly minted economists or stale shayari from the Congress stable. Consider some facts in next few tweets.1/10 Currency in circulation (CIC): CIC was down by 8% Y-o-Y as against 17.2% rise in previous year. So as of 27th Oct 2017, CIC was around 91% of pre-demonetization levels and actually 81% if same growth rate had continued in absence of demonetization. 2/10
