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”

    Law and order situation cannot deteriorate now. The politicians cannot pay the goondas to start a protest and violence. There is no money in their coffers and the Goondas will not take old notes. Good Luck hoping for situation in law and order.

    1. It is natural that Prime Minister vehemently supports his government’s decision of demonetisation. On the other hand leaders of many political parties, with different ideologies, are very critical of demonetisation. It is clear that some political parties will be hit very badly on account of demonetisation. In this context one can understand why politicians like Shri Rahul hi, Shri Uddhav Thackeray, Ms Mamata Banerjee, Shri Arvind Kejriwal and Ms Brinda Karat have criticised decision to demonetise these notes. 2. It is Shri Arvind Kejriwal’s prerogative, as Chief Minister of Delhi to criticise NDA government’s decision to demonetise notes. He is a seasoned politician. Hence, he should know that decisions like demonetisation can never be rescinded. All those political leaders who have not liked decision to demonetise currency notes of Rs. 500 & Rs 1,000/- should be ready to accept it gracefully. Of course, there can be detailed discussion on the subject in the Parliament and elsewhere. 3. Although many ordinary citizens have to undergo hardships currently on account of lack of new currency notes, they know that demonetisation is just a first measure to curb, and curb effectively, generation of unaccounted wealth. They are ready to wait and suffer inconvenience as ultimately the common man will benefit from an economy with less amount of black money.
