Taking a jibe at Narendra Modi-led central government, Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh made a sarcastic comment on Reserve Bank of India on Saturday. The leader, known for creating controversies, joked: “RBI is busy printing millions of new notes everyday to create a cashless economy.”

In another Tweet, the leader saluted sarcastically countrymen who are facing troubles due to demonetisation, for  their patience and discipline.

“Venezuela withdraws demonetisation decision after Riots broke out leading to chaos. I salute the patience and discipline of Indians,” he said. Earlier on Monday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has announced that the country’s largest banknote, the 100 bolivar note will cease to exist and be removed from circulation.  The move was directed to stop the hoarding of cash by the mafia and smugglers. However, the decision taken at a time when the country was facing a huge financial crisis, backfired as protests broke out in the country.

Reuters reported that hundreds of Venezuelans jumped barriers to defy their government’s closure of the Colombian border on Saturday. Looting and protests were continued due to a cash shortage, causing pre-Christmas chaos. The kick-off on Friday following this week’s surprise pulling from circulation of Venezuela’s largest denomination note, 100 bolivars, before replacement bills were available.
