Over heated political protest by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee against the demonetisation policy implemented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had today slammed the WB CM claiming that the opposition leader is opposition and criticizing just for the sake of it.
Mamata Banerjee had, earlier in the day, announced fresh protest against the note-ban policy implemented by the Prime Minister, and asserted that she will be on road in Delhi tomorrow, ready for any political program. The West Bengal CM had also claimed that the central government is confused, as it had rolled back at least 15 decisions since the implementation of the demonetisation policy.

Yesterday, at a ‘Parivartan’ rally at Agra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi targeted Mamata Banerjee over her continuing protest against the newly implemented policy. The Prime Minister said that political leaders, behind multi-crore chit fund scams, being affected by the anti-graft policy, are attacking the government.
Citing the increase in black money in the country, PM Modi, on November 8, had implemented the demonetisation policy, thereby putting a ban on currency notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. Chaotic situation among the common people continued following the ban on old currency notes, as people waited for hours, in never-ending queues outside banks and ATMs, to replace their old currency notes and get a grab at the new usable cash.
The implementation of the anti-graft policy created a political storm, with opposition parties blaming the government for formulating public distress. Over heated political uproar at the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha, both the houses had been adjourned, today, till tomorrow.
