Amid continuing public distress following the ban on currency notes after the implementation of the demonetisation policy by the Narendra Modi government, an ex-serviceman had been repeatedly slapped by a policeman outside a bank in Bagalkot of Karnataka.

Citing the rise in the flow of black money in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, had implemented the demonetisation policy, following which there had been a ban on currency notes of the denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. Chaotic situation emerged among the common people of the country, after the ban on currency notes and even weeks after the implementation o the policy, people had been seen, standing on ‘never-ending’ queues, waiting for hours, outside banks and ATMs.

Following the anti-graft policy by the Modi government, a political storm erupted across the country, with opposition leaders blaming the Prime Minister and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled central government for the escalating pain among the common people of the country. And amid political uproar and heated protest by opposition, the parliamentary winter session in both Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha had been disrupted with both the houses witnessing repeated adjournments.
