After a week of demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes by the Centre to combat corruption and black money, there is no decrease in the suffering of common men. Leave alone day long queues outside ATMs to withdraw cash, now the people have started sleeping outside in front of the ATMs in a desperate effort to get their hands on some cash. It was evident at Bhajanpura area of Delhi where a large number of people were seen waiting outside an ATM with blankets in the early morning hours on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the ban on the high-value currency notes on November 8. Since then, long serpentine queues of people outside banks and ATMs have grabbed the headlines. Explaining his trouble, Mayadevi, a common man told ANI at Bhajanpura ATM that she had been coming since three days to withdraw cash and returning empty-handed. The condition was similar of Rafeeq who said that he came earlier but there was no cash. “We come here with hope. Fine if we get money otherwise we will come again tomorrow,” he said.

Meanwhile, the step has given nightmares to those who have weddings and other major functions ahead. Sunil, a Delhiite, said that he had wedding schedule and had to make different payments urgently. Thus, he was waiting overnight at the ATM to withdraw cash. “We need cash to make several payments urgently due to the marriage. So, we need cash. I am here in the queue while two of my brothers have lined up outside the different banks.”

    It's a shame that ordinary hardworking people who saved pie by pie have today stand in line like beggars - to withdraw their own money!! All for the satisfaction of PM's gigantic ego.

The least money I get in a day with it is about $5,000.(Five thousand USD) Every now and then I keeping pumping money into my account. Though is illegal,there is no risk of being caught ,because it has been programmed in such a way that it is not traceable,it also has a technique that makes it impossible for the CCTVs to detect you..For details on how to get yours today, email the hackers on :(). Tell your loved once too, and start to live large. That's the simple testimony of how my life changed for good...Love you all ..the email address again is ;
