While the government is claiming demonetisation as one of the biggest decision of its regime, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday ridiculed the move. Taking a dig at government he said, “Banks are doling out cash to citizens. That is proof that ‘Achhe Din’ have arrived!”

In a series of tweets came down heavily on Modi government. “Millions of working people standing in the queue. Long live productivity,” he said in the first tweet. Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement that the poor are getting sound sleep while rich are buying sleeping pills, he wrote, “Thousands of ‘rich’ and ‘corrupt’ persons standing in queue. The poor are cheering from their homes!”

However, some people and government asserting the move as the biggest reform but it prompted poor people even daily wage workers to stand in the queue instead of going to work. The situation has also fueled anger among people as sometimes they are unable to get money even after spending four-five hours in queues.

Critising the scenario Chidambaram, referring Modi’s poll slogan, wrote, “Banks are doling out cash to citizens. That is proof that “Achhe Din” have arrived!”

Tuesday was the seventh day since demonetisation but there was no respite seen as rush doubled at banks and post office due to Monday’s off.
