Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday chaired a meeting of party general secretaries to chalk out plans for the first note ban anniversary, being observed as 'Black Day' across the country, party leaders said.

During the three-hour long meeting, Gandhi described demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as two jolts suffered by the Indian economy.

“PM has hit country's economy with two torpedoes of demonetisation and GST which have destroyed it,” the Congress leader said.

“PM saying that November 8 will be celebrated conveys message that he has not understood pain and feelings of people,” he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced on November 8 last year that notes of higher denomination had been scrapped.

According to sources, Gandhi discussed plans for nationwide protests on November 8.

The day is being observed as 'Black Day' by other opposition parties as well.

Top Congress leaders are attending the meeting convened at the party headquarters.
