Following the implementation of the demonetisation policy by the Narendra Modi-led central government and the daily problems faced by the common people to get new currency notes, Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut had claimed for a roll back of the policy. The Shiv Sena leader had warned the central government saying that if Narendra Modi doesn’t roll back the note-ban policy, the government will be rolled back.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had, on November 8, initiated the demonetisation policy, following which currency notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 had been banned and replaced with new notes. Following the note-ban their had been a panic among people, with many standing in long lines outside the banks and ATMs, in order to replace the banned notes with the newer ones, thereby saving their currency notes from turning into useless pieces of paper.
With discontent among people, struggling to collect usable cash from the banks or ATMs, opposition parties have also locked horns with the Modi-government, with afew calling it a scam. Amid political storm resulted post Narendra Modi’s new policy, Congress and seven other opposition parties had met on Monday to formulate a joint strategy to discuss issues including the demonetisation policy.
However, Prime Minister Modi had taken an aggressive tone against the opposition and claimed that it was a mandate to implement the policy, citing the increase in the circulation of blackmoney in the country. The oppositions had, though, argued claiming that the sudden ban in the notes created major pain for the poor and the middle class and had demanded for a better outcome to lessen public distress.
