Plotting another fresh revolt against the Narendra Modi government, over the implementation of the demonetisation policy, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, today announced that she will be visiting Delhi tomorrow. Stating that she will be on road, again, protesting against the public distress resulted due to the note ban policy, the WB CM claimed that she is ready to join any political program over the issue.
Mamata Banerjee also claimed that the central government is confused over the demonetisation policy as they have rolled back at least 15 decisions since the implementation of the policy on November 18. Mamata suggested the center to come up with a proper plan of action instead of the announcement of changes on a daily basis.
Accusing the Modi-implemented note-ban policy of depriving the common people of their white money, the West Bengal CM said, ” Blackmoney had turned more black and the lower middle class, traders, daily wagers, housewives are the worst sufferers.”

Citing the rise in the circulation off black money in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, had initiated the demonetisation policy, following which there had been a ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes replacing them with new currency notes. There had been a chaotic situation among the people since the implementation of the anti-graft policy, with several people waiting for hours, in ‘never-ending’ queues outside banks and ATMs, waiting to replace their old currency notes or get a grab of the new usable notes, even as the ATMs run out of cash.
Heated political uproar erupted, following the implementation of the demonetisation policy by the center, with the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha witnessing repeated adjournments since Wednesday. Over political storm, resulted due to opposition’s protests, both the houses had been adjourned, today, till tomorrow.
Yesterday, at a ‘Parivartan’ rally at Agra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi targetted the West Bengal CM claiming that political leaders, behind multi-crore chit fund scams, being affected by the anti-graft policy, are attacking the government. However Mamata stated that the people who are in distress because of the note ban will never forgive the Prime Minister, and said, “Pradhan Mantriji, you are equating corruption with anyone who opposes your policy. Are you the only magician?”
