Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal kicked off a storm on Saturday over demonetisation of notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. In a press conference, he alleged that the entire move was a scam by BJP led NDA Government and that some players already had prior knowledge about the move.

Pointing fingers at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he alleged that all his friends who had black money were informed beforehand after which they shifted their money. The Delhi chief minister further said that there had been misreporting on money deposits made in banks. He further said that in previous quarters deposits in banks were negative, but July to September, large amount were deposited in banks and asked to whom does the money belong to.

Arvind Kejriwal also said that in the name of battling corruption, only thing that would occur is a lot of money is going to change hands. The government has said those people who deposit their black money will have to pay tax and pay a penalty of 200 percent. Which holder of black money is going to make such a deposit?, he asked.

Continuing his attack on the intention of the government, the AAP chief claimed the Centre had come out with the move knowing fully well that the ATMs are not configured to dispense the new Rs 2000 notes at present.

Rejecting his allegations, MoS Finance Santosh Kumar Gangwar said that Arvind Kejriwal is only  trying to degrade the initiative taken by the government and asked him to show the proof of his claim.

    Modi's honest government has not left him any argument and hence such ultra negatism. Delhi has committed a ber so this the way to do 'paschatap' to tolerate him.

        Kejri is doing what he does, so we should not surprise on him. Now most of the parties are confused that what they do now. Neither they can criticize now and nor they can appreciate. Now only the leaders are crying because they did not allow to settle their unaccounted money.

          Kejriwal is a rotten mango of Indian society. This corrupt and characterless "aaloo" is unfit to be in any civilized society let alone in governance. In this case he's particularly anno because all his ill gotten cash in Punjab and Goa has overnight turned into pieces of paper. Second, his mentor has openly praised Modi for anti-corruption efforts and thus Kejriwal's anti-corruption platform has also slipped from his hand and hence he's using words like scam etc

                Such allegations should be backed up by proper data. If at all what the Joker of a chief Minister is alleging is true, the the computerised records and KYC doents from July onward will easily reveal the truth. Let this be investigated by CBI/RBI/IB as these are serious charges and can be limited to just 6 cities- Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Surat and Bangalore. Persons elected to high Office should learn to behave responsibly or learn to keep their traps shut.

                  Small shops have either shut down their business or are running into mive losses. There is an acute shortage of change. ATM's in most cases are non-functional. Since the announcement the w country is moving on credit and trust. The step may have been a bold, much needed one. Maybe it had to be kept a secret, but obviously there had to be mive planning, organising and then monitoring to ensure that there was no chaos. So, we trade illegally to get 4 hundred rupee notes to buy milk, take credit from whoever we can and make half white, half black payment deals. Congratulations, badly designed policy! You have made a corrupt citizen out of countless law abiding people who only wish they were rich enough to horde black money.

                    Kejri is a SCAM. He is the result of the biggest ber Delhites have made.I wonder his level of civilization. If this is what is the result of education in high level colleges, I think we need to have a re-look at our educational system.

                        Exactly who kicked what: NaMo kicked a storm or NaMo kicked a lot of butts and the most hurt is whining.
