In his address to the media Chief Minister (CM) of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal ridiculed the central government’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes and the crisis arising thereof. Addressing the press the Delhi CM said that the Prime Minister (PM) should actually find a concrete resolution towards this crisis as soon as possible and the drama of 50 days will not stand a chance.
Kejriwal said that the PM has sought time for the next 50 days, does it mean that the people continue to suffer till the next 50 days? “PM came from Japan and sought co-operation for more 50 days to deal with issue; will the common man continue to suffer till then” said an angry Kejriwal.
Kejriwal said that after PM’s Goa speech there is a panic in the general public, ” I have received a lot of calls; there is a sense of panic among people after PM Modi’s speech in Goa. Also, I felt sad hearing the kind of language PM used against people who stood in queues; he has mocked the people and must apologise.”
Demanding quick action from the government the Aam Admi Party (AAP) National Convener, Kejriwal said, “We demand that the Govt must take this issue seriously and must come with a solution to deal with the law and order situation.” He appealed to the PM to take strict action against his corporate friends,”If you are really serious about the issue, then he must take strict action against his corporate friends.”
Cautioning the government to tread carefully Kejriwal said,”There is still time, take back this decision before the law and order situation further deteriorates”
