To this, Nalin Kohli from BJP, said: “when it is said that ‘120 died because of demonetisation’, there are thousands affected by terrorism, is that not an issue?”

Earlier on Monday, Owaisi had accused central government of partiality in dispensing cash at minority-dominated areas. Owaisi, in a rally held at Hyderabad, put serious charges on government and said that cash hasn’t been dispersed off in these areas. The leader added that Muslim community is being unnecessarily troubled by Government through demonetisation, Jagran.com reported on Monday. The Government, however, hit back at the leader saying that ATMs don’t see religion before dispensing cash.
Earlier, the Hyderabad MP had called Modi “a tyrant” who has caused havoc in every house to satisfy his ego. Attacking Modi, Owaisi said the revolution which he was dreaming to bring about with the November 8 demonetization would never be achieved as the move has pushed people into distress. “He sometimes laughs, sometimes cries. He doesn’t know what he is doing. He says there is threat to his life. We only pray that he live for 150 years,” the AIMIM chief said.
