RBI Governor Urjit Patel on Wednesday fled from an army of journalists waiting to question him on demonetisation. Patel was at the Mahatma Mandir, venue of the 8th Vibrant Gujarat Summit, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.
A large contingent of reporters from the print and electronic media had gathered outside the Seminar Hall on the first floor waiting for Patel to come out. On the alert, Patel gave the media a slip to escape from the back door. He literally started running while reporters ran after him on the stairs. The RBI Governor jumped more than a step at times to reach his car which sped away.
Patel is being criticised since the day demonetisation has taken place.
