Help people: Sachin Pilot tells Congress workers


On his way to the Congress office in the state capital Pradesh Congress Committee president Sachin Pilot stopped to listen to the woes of people standing in long lines outside banks and ATMs to have access to their own money or seek valid legal tender in place of the demonetized Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. 

Some of the people in line told him that they had been standing for over five hours. In a press release on Tuesday, the state unit of the Congress said it had instructed party workers to come to the aid of those in these lines, and to distribute water to those queuing up outside banks and ATMs.
