New Delhi: BJP chief Amit Shah on Wednesday described Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, him as a "tragedy manufacturer" and condemned him for "misleading" the nation on demonetisation.

Amid a war of words on the first anniversary of the Centre's demonetisation decision, Shah took to Twitter to attack the Congress and its leaders, including Rahul Gandhi.

"The BJP strongly condemns Rahul Gandhi for trying to mislead the nation on the issue of demonetisation," he said in a tweet.

He also asked the Congress to stop shedding crocodile tears for the poor.

"The lies of the Congress have been unmasked and it can no longer capture power by spreading fake news and fake images," the Bharatiya Janata Party chief said.

Shah's attack comes in the wake of Rahul Gandhi's tweet in which he used a photograph of an old man Nand Lal to attack demonetisation.

A former Army man, Nand Lal, 80, had broken down last year after he was unable to withdraw his pension after waiting for hours at a bank branch in Gurugram. 

Shah said Nand Lal had lauded the "historic step" taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government to uproot corruption and black money.

"It is deplorable how Rahul Gandhi believes in manufacturing tragedies, so much so that he is also using the poor of India to score cheap political points," he said, IANS reported.

Continuing his tirade against the Congress leader, Shah said the grand old party under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi has become 'Incorrect News Congress'.

"It has become the biggest source of fake news in India," he said.
