Former finance minister P Chidambaram has now hit out at the central government’s sudden decision to roll back the existing Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes saying that this scheme is not demonetisation, this is ‘Old Notes for New’. Chidambaram charged that the unprepared government has pushed common people into misery and despair.

Chidambaram said that the government should release the 2012 CBDT report that advised against demonetisation.

This criticism from the former finance minister and a Congress veteran comes at a time when Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi is on an official visit to Japan. On the other side major political opposition leaders like Mamata Banerjee, Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal and others have seemingly ganged up together against this move of the government.

        Say what you want Mr. Chidambaram. The demonetization has already taken place. The illegal money held by anyone in the form of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 has already gone down the drain. Instead of wasting time in criticizing the government, you and your ilk must concentrate on creating new black money so that you can continue the agenda of dividing the nation.

            These guys either want to take the credit; criticize otherwise. All opposition parties including INC are exposed. Modi hit where it hearts most. Modi will be PM for next 3 or 4 terms if he counties this kind of growth programs. Jalanewale jalajala marenge.
