WITHDRAW THIS DRACONIAN DECISION: Mamata Banerjee on Centre’s decision to end use of 500, 1000 rupee notes
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today lashed out at the Centre for the decision to end the use of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes from midnight tonight.
She took to Twitter to register her protest and demanded this draconian decision be withdrawn:
“While I’m strongly against black money, corruption, deeply concerned about common people, small traders. How they will buy essentials tomorrow?
This is a financial chaos and disaster let loose on the common people of India… The PM could not get back the promised black money from abroad from the rich so a drama to divert his failure…
I want to know from PM how my poorest brothers sisters,who’ve recd their week’s hard earned wage in one 500 re note will buy ata,chal, tomorrow?
Heartless and ill- conceived blow on the common people and the middle class in the fake name of anti-corruption
Rs 100 notes not available in banks. Without availability in market how will people, small farmers, all employees, labourers purchase essentials?
WITHDRAW THIS DRACONIAN DECISION”
