In a dramatic development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday moved a resolution in the assembly urging President Pranab Mukherjee to direct Centre to withdraw Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes. Casting aspersions on the much debated economic reform, Kejriwal condemned the way PM Narendra Modi has chosen to demonetise currency. Putting allegations of corruption on Narendra Modi, Arvind Kejriwal said that it’s for first time in history of independent India, a sitting PM’s name has come in black money transactions. “An amount of Rs 25 crore unaccounted cash was recovered by CBI from Aditya Birla group’s New Delhi office in search operation conducted in 2013, the laptop of Aditya Birla Group disclosed a transaction. Written – Gujarat CM-25Cr,” Delhi CM said in Assembly.

Earlier, the Delhi Government has convened an emergency session of the Delhi Assembly today to discuss the situation arising out of demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupees notes. The decision to this effect was taken at a Cabinet meeting yesterday. Briefing reporters Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the government has also decided to deploy its civil defence volunteers near ATMs and bank branches to help the people in queues. He had also demanded roll back of the decision of demonetisation of high-value notes and bring it after a well chalked out plan.

Kejriwal on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the trouble cost to common man after demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes. “Yesterday PM Modi took blessings of Sharad Pawar to fight against black money, no irony can be bigger than that,” said Kejriwal in the Press Conference. The Delhi CM added that an emergency session of the state assembly has been called for tomorrow. Kejriwal made the comments after chairing a special cabinet session at his residence.

Major political parties, which included Communist Party Of India-Marxist (CPI(M)), Congress, Samajwadi Party, Aam Aadmi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), voiced their opposition to the currency demonetisation and black money crackdown initiated by the Centre.

        He does not know what he does. I saw his picture wherein he was burning a new Rs.2,000 note in protest against the demonetization. This is not a behavior expected from a Chief Minister, that too fully educated.

                AG has no other work. He only knows to criticize the actions taken by the Central Government. He does not work and doe not allow others also to work.

                  Now that Kejriwal has cleared all smog from Delhi, he starting on a noble cause: Torpedoing a bold initiative by the Centre! If you feel like puking it is not your lunch's fault.It is the effect politicians such as these have on you.
