"First make me understand what the Agnipath scheme is. The BJP people say they are patriots, make me understand their patriotism,"  Gandhi said. The Congress MP also launched a scathing attack at the Modi govt over demonetisation and GST. He said, "demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax (GST) were not policies but weapons to destroy small and medium businesses.
