Showing their disagreement over the demonetisation drive imposed by the central government, the opposition parties today have called for a nationwide strike (Bharat Bandh) on November 28. During the Rajya Sabha session today, the opposition party attacked the central government over demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes calling it to be an impractical move.

Igniting the fire, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during his speech at the Rajya Sabha today criticised center’s decision to scrap high value currencies further calling it to be a monumental management failure. Singh further predicted the move to lead to a downfall of 2 per cent in country’s GDP.

Extending his grief, the Singh said that 50 days can be disastrous for the poor and the move has exposed the RBI to criticism. Faith in banking system can be eroded and agriculture sector will see a significant dip in the wake of demonetisation, Singh added.
Today more than a dozen of opposition parities indicated towards boosting up their campaign against the note ban in the state where they have presence or support. A couple of days ago West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee was seen protesting in New Delhi along with Arvind Kejriwal.

Many opposition parties including the Congress, the Trinamool Congress and BSP, against the constant absence of the Prime Minister from Parliament despite the growing demand for him to debate on demonetisation, protested outside the parliament today.

Even Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, expressing is distress over the demonetisation drive , said that there is no meaning to PM getting emotional and shedding tears during speeches. He must make an effort to wipe tears of people instead. He also warned the government to take former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s words more seriously, as it came from a veteran economist.

    Even the opposition parties cannot deny that black money in India has vastly eroded the purchasing power of the rupee and the GDP has been corrupted. Further there is a crisis in the currency value and the rupee - dollar parity has been witnessing a steady fall resulting in the export - import earnings showing adverse balance. This parallel underground economy has to be put down and some drastic measures are required. Demonetization of the high currency bills like Rs.500 and Rs.1000 is the need of the hour and the PM has to be applauded for his bold measures even though it has created quite some problems in the short run for the common man. This is like a surgical operation of the diseased part of a human body which has to be excised to restore the health of the man.
