Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent emotional speech at an internal Bharataiya Janata Party (BJP) all-MP meet, Shiv Shena chief Uddhav Thackerey said that there is no meaning to a PM getting emotional and shedding tears during speeches. He must make an effort to wipe tears of people instead, he added. Taking his dig a step further, Thackeray also alleged the demonetisation move is an extortionary move against the common man. He has also warned the BJP to take former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s words more seriously, as it came from a veteran economist.

During today’s Rajya Sabha session, the former PM critised government’s demonetisation move calling it to be a case of organised loot and legalised plunder. He also said that the move was a monumental management failure and predicted a downfall in GDP downfall by 2 per cent, if now taken back.

Further threatening the government, Thackeray while speaking to media said that he will not hesitate in taking a critical stand on the process with which demonetisation was implemented. Shiv Sena Chief also referred to the referendum Britain sought before splitting from the European Union, quoted ET. Seeing people’s response UK Prime Minister chose to step down, will something similar happen here, he said.

Thackeray also questioned Modi over being emotional at a time when people have tears in their eyes. Adding to his grievances, he further said that one person alone cannot decide for 125 crore people. Before taking such pivotal decision to demonetise the currency, he (the PM) should have taken common people in confidence.
