Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday took another dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the matter of demonetisation. Kejriwal took to social media website Twitter and said that the people needed to change the Prime Minister instead of the old notes. Kejriwal has been quite vocally opposing the demonetisation of the central government ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

Earlier this month, Kejriwal had gone on a live session on Facebook criticising the move and speaking about the inconveniences faced by the common man due to demonetisation. Kejriwal had accused the Prime Minister of informing is associates of the demonetisation scheme well before the announcement so that they could find a way out. The Delhi CM had then gone on to ask PM Modi about the latter’s actions against all the Swiss bank account holders whose account numbers he had provided in a press conference.

Kejriwal had also gone on to address a rally with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at Azadpur Mandi, earlier last week. both the leaders had been shown black flags by the fans of Prime Miniter Narendra Modi. Meanwhile, Kejriwal’s Assembly speech was reported to have garnered a huge response all over the social media. An official AAP statement had claimed that at least 50 lakh people had viewed the Delhi CM’s assembly speech on demonetisation on various social media websites.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, at around 10 pm had announced the scrapping of the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denomination notes by midnight. The banks and ATMs had been asked to shut down for the next two days. Once the banks opened on November 11, huge crowds were seen outside trying to exchange, deposit or withdraw their money for the new currency. While the decision was called bold and lauded for being a positive step in taking down black money, it was also criticised for the lack of planning and poor execution.

    We thought he speaks low, then his utterances went from lowest to gutter and then we could not find an adequate density of adjective. To sum up he could be an ultra negative repulsive figure not fit for any office.

    The people of Delhi should be given the option of recalling this lunatic CM. The same with Bengal. Looks like these CMs had no other work to do other than counting their black junk, but now that is a worthless exercise they are going ballistic.

    Delhi's people are fed up with this outspoken CM. I'm sure if given a chance, 3/4th of people who had voted him would like to vote for his ouster.

    Why is The Financial Express reporting this as a Headline? This is neither Financial nor significant for the Economy or Politics for that matter, in any way.

    I like Kejri ... he is in self-destruction mode. He is the triumph card for NDA to win Delhi in the next elections. I really like him.

    People of India will do by excercising their franchise in 2019, but it is for BJP to take a decision to change their leader.
