Union Minister Radvi Shankar Prasad has said that after the demonetisation was implemented by the Centre on November 8, there is no doubt the fact that people are facing inconvenience, but that would be sorted out soon. Speaking at a summit organised by ABP News, he said added that even though people are facing problems they continue to support the government in its fight against black money, whenever a journalists ask anybody whether the person would vote for Narendra Modi’s government the answer is always affirmative. Stressing that even the prime minister had never denied that there won’t be any inconvenience, Ravi Shankar Prasad further said that being full of confidence, the country is ready to change now.
Speaking on India’s policy on Pakistan, which deteriorated after the Uri attack in which 19 Indian soldiers lost their lives, the minister said as against earlier the hands of the government were tied while dealing with Pakistan, but now things have changed and it has been isolated globally. Pointing on questions raised by several Opposition leaders after surgical strikes were carried out by the army in terrorists camps in PoK, the minister also felt that there should not be any politics on the issue as the entire country loves our soldiers and Pakistan will be given tough response if and when required.
During the discussion, Ravi Shankar Prasad added the government believes democracy as also the freedom of the press and diversity.
