At a time when the entire country is debating the effects of demonetisation, here is a news that may increase the faith of people in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to ban old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

A 22-year-old woman of Rajasthan was almost sold by her father and brother for Rs 20 lakhs. Thanks to the currency ban, the deal couldn’t materialise and the woman managed to escape in time, a report in Hindi daily Dainik Jagran said today.

The woman is a resident of Sikar district in Rajasthan. According to police, she had visited Alwar with her brother and his wife on Wednesday to celebrate the latter’s birthday. She was convinced by her father to go to Alwar. The woman’s brother and his wife met some people at Alwar bus stand and started talking about a cash transaction and sale of something. The woman’s brother was demanding Rs 20 lakh. But the buyers said they didn’t have cash because of demonetisation and offered to pay a cheque of Rs 20 lakh.

While both the parties were still arguing about the deal, the woman understood what was happening and somehow managed to flee from the spot. With the help of some locals later, she approached the police superintendent’s office. The woman was then sent to the local police station. On the basis of the woman’s complaint, police have arrested the father and the brother.

The opposition parties in India have slammed the demonetisation move by the government. However, PM Modi have denied their charges. Speaking at an event in New Delhi today, PM Modi said the opposing leaders are actually pained that they themselves did not get time to make any preparation. Had these people got even 72 hours, they would have lavished praise.

    I am very very happy with demonetisation. Many many more such moving stories will come to light. By the way , the opposition leaders who are complaining that farmers are suffering because of acute shortage of banks in the rural areas. I would like to remind that it is Indira hi's who is credited for the bold decision of nationalization of banks and one reason behind the decision was to push the banking system in the rural areas which the congress governments neglected for 40 years. Therefore it does not lie in their mouth to lament the shortage of banks in rural areas. Modi government has taken the initiative to do what Congress neglected so long .amprasad
