After terming PM Narendra Modi’s demonetisation drive as ‘economic Nasbandi’, Market guru Shankar Sharma on Thursday said that BJP is only good at talking. “Congress best in walking. BJP best in talking. But Congress can’t talk the walk. BJP can’t walk the talk. Therein lies India’s tragedy,” he tweeted. This was followed by another tweet which said, “Walking is better for a Nation’s Health than Talking: Nostradamus.” Earlier, the ace investor slammed the Modi government over the demonetisation drive. Criticising the move from Day 1, Sharma tweeted, “This demonetisation reminds of the Nasbandi drive of 70s. Bina soche, Bina blood/ oxygen, straight castration. This is economic Nasbandi.”

Last month, he had also tweeted, “didn’t realise whole country was corrupt, looking at the bank lines. And by extension, the 0.1 pct not in que are honest. Total reversal.” Sharma had even called this India’s ‘Lehman moment’. “We should be proud. We now have a financial logjam. Our Lehman moment,” he said. “One thing is clear to me: there will be a significant earnings hit because of demonetization.

The market is reacting correctly,” he had said last week. Shankar Sharma also claimed that had the demonetisation happened during the Congress regime, it would have been implemented “superbly”. “One thing I am sure of: if UPA had done anything like this demonetization, they would have managed superbly. PC super manager. Not this mess,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Chidambaram too has been slamming demonetisation. He recently called demonetisation as the biggest scam of the year. Taking a sarcastic dig at PM Modi’s promise of “acche din”. “1. Millions of working people standing in queue. Long live Productivity. 2. Thousands of “rich” and “corrupt” persons standing in queue. The poor are cheering from their homes! 3. Banks are doling out cash to citizens. That is proof that “Achhe Din” have arrived!,” the former Finance Minister tweeted last month.
