The Congress leader also alleged that ex-RBI Governor resigned in just two years as PM Modi didn't want him to go after wilful defaulters. Gandhi through his tweet was referring to Patel's recently launched book, 'Overdraft: Saving The Indian Saver'. In the book, it has been said that RBI's decision to dilute the bankruptcy law caused the rift between the Reserve Bank of India and the Narendra Modi government.
