With political heat escalating, following the implementation of the demonetisation policy by the Narendra Modi government, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, today, criticized the central government stating that instead of bringing back black money saved in the Swiss banks, the Prime Minister had initiated a policy to snatch the money of the common people of the country.
Claiming that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will get a befitting reply from the people of the country, Mamata Banerjee asserted that the ruling party will not get any votes in the next elections. The West Bengal CM will be visiting Delhi, today, and had announced that she’ll be rallying in the national capital to raise voice against the newly implemented note-ban policy.
Citing the increase in the circulation of blackmoney in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, had initiated the demonetisation policy, thereby putting a ban on the curency notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. There had been a chaotic situation among the common people, since the implementation of the anti-graft policy, with several people standing in ‘never-ending’ queues outside banks and ATMs, waiting for hours, to replace their old currency notes and get a grab of the new usable cash.
The note-ban policy had also created a political uproar throughout the country, with opposition leaders strongly protesting against the Modi government, blaming them for the continuing public distress. The political storm had also affected the parliamentary houses, with the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha witnessing frequent adjournments since November 16. Over heated political arguments, both the houses had been adjourned for the day, once again, today.
