Chandrababu Naidu hopes cash crises to end by January
Vijayawada: Appealing all to work collectively to reduce problems of people caused due to demonetisation, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu hoped on Wednesday that the current currency crisis would eventually end by January 2017.
The central government has appointed Chandrababu as the Convenor of a 13-member committee to examine all issues relating to demonetisation and its aftermath. On Wednesday night, he said at a press conference that December was a "crucial" month in the current scenario.
"December is a crucial month. I hope this problem would end by January 2017. By the time of Sankranti festival, things are expected to get back to normal," he said.
"Its a major issue which concerns everyone. We have to think and work collectively to solve this problem. Ultimately, the common man is suffering and to end his woes, we need to work as a unit," Chandrababu said.
On being asked about the date of committee meeting, he said they would decide the date after discussion.
"The committee members comprise Chief Ministers, experts and NITI Aayog members. When we all will sit together, the future course of action would be decided," he added.
On his selection as the head of the committee by the Centre, he said, "I am not aware what they had in mind. But our priority should be to come out of this situation first. We are here to do good to the country."
