Amid heated political controversies over the demonetisation policy implemented by the Narendra Modi government, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah today slammed the opposition parties and leaders criticizing the anti-graft policy. The ruling party president stated that oppositions united following the newly implemented policy and claimed that the anti-graft policy created scare among the opponent leaders.

“Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, Arvind Kejriwal, Mamata Banerjee got united since the Prime Minister initiated the note-ban policy because they are scared,” said Amit Shah.

Taking a sharp tone against Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah questioned the contribution of the party during UPA1 and UPA2. The senior BJP leader accused Congress of frequently getting into scams and corruption scandals during their 10 years of rule. He also claimed that Congress had created a scam worth Rs 12 lakh core.

The BJP party pesident had also mocked Rahul Gandhi for questioning the Prime Minister saying,”Rahul Baba toured places and asked what has PM done for them?; let me answer the first thing we did was to give bolne wala PM.”

Citing the rise in the circulation of black money in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, had initiated the demonetisation policy, following which there had been a ban currency notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.

Citing public distress caused due to the ban on currency notes, as people keep standing on never-ending queues outside banks and ATMs, opposition parties and leaders locked horns with the central government. The oppositions had also cornered ruling party at the parliament, and there had been repeated adjournments at the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The parliament, on Friday, had been adjourned , over heated debates and protests, till Monday.

    Amit Shah may be thinking that by attacking the Opposition, he can hide the bers committed by the Centre while implementing the demonetisation policy. Narendra Modi and his government have exposed their utter inefficiency and incompetence by not doing enough home work before announcing such important measure to check black money. It seems the sufferings of people do not matter to the BJP as long as it stands to benefit from its actions.

      The so called demonetization drive is big circus,agree that it can curb counterfeit currency notes but how it end black money? Instead of shouting from the roof top bring the black money from abroad. also release the list of people those who stashed black money abroad.

        Was this the same person who had criminal cases (including murder) filed against him ? And then managed to wriggle out of the same after BJP came into power. This party talks about "collateral damage", "todi si asuvidha" when 60 people have died standing in bank queues and calls Ghulam Nabi Azad an anti-national, when he rightly said the number of lives lost due to this surgical strike is more than the lives lost in terrorist attack. This party overlooks 500 crore wedding in Bangalore conducted by ex-BJP state minister, while sending notices to people depositing lakhs in their account. Wedding conducted on November 15, when demonetization was announced on 9th, how could the person get so much. Were all payments made by cheque ? If not how the person got the cash ? The nation needs an answer. In Maharastra, a state BJP minister was said to be caught with 91 lakhs in cash. Looks like the person accusing other parties of looting is the biggest looter now.

          Perception Benefits in future Vs Real LossesI feel the real issues over the demonatization are mentioned below. 1) Loss of business opportunities for enterprises (State Govts/ Traders); 2) Loss of employment avenues for daily wage workers; 3) Inconvenience meted out to individuals for daily needs, SPL. occasions, emergencies; 4) Inability of Govt system and its ecosystem for not obeying its own decisions (For example, not a single agency had accepted denominations of Rs 500/Rs 1000 in the first 5 days); 5) Every individual is forced spend extra spending without his/her interest; He/She are loosing money daily; 6) Loss of human life;7) Perception Benefits in future Vs Real Losses

            I deal with people in government bureaucracy daily. They say that this government is more corrupt than all the others. Only thing is they know how to hide it very well and not get caught.
