The Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Derek O’Brien on Wednesday again attacked the Narendra Modi dispensation said that even after three months of demonetisation, pain and suffering of people is still not over. He added that the economy is a complete mess. Saying that the mishandling of these crucial affairs cannot be accepted, he said that Trinamool Congress MPs will protest at the Gandhi statue in Parliament and will also raise the issue in both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on the pain and suffering caused by the note ban which was implemented on November 8, 2016 by the NDA government. From day one Mamata’s party Trinamool Congress and other opposition parties have been protesting against the note-ban drive.
West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee too has weighed in against the note pain impact. Asserting that restrictions over the move and suffering of the citizens are not over, she said that the nation has lost its economic freedom post the ‘visionless’ drive by the Centre. Banerjee took to Twitter and said, “Today, three months over. Restrictions and sufferings not over. Citizens have lost economic freedom. When economic freedom is lost, the main freedom is lost. Only a few rich capitalists are not suffering. commoners, middle class, downtrodden, poorest continue to suffer.”

He said the decision on demonetisation is a movement to clean India from corruption and black money, adding the timing for the implementation of the decision was right as the economy was doing well.
