You cannot do anything because Trinamool Congress is right and you are wrong. You cannot suppress the voice of the people. You have to withdraw restrictions (on withdrawal of cash)… Modi has no clue where this political vidictiveness will take him. We are not scared and will continue our demonstration against demonetisation,” the chief minister further said.
