KTR, who is also state minister for industries and information technology, was reacting to a tweet by a TRS member P. Vishnuwardhan Reddy.
Reddy posted a media report abou the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data which reveals that six years after demonetisation, the cash with public increased by 72 per cent from Rs 17.97 lakh crore to Rs 30.88 lakh crore.
