Demonetisation row: PM Modi reminds me of Mohd. Bin Tuglaq, says Katju
Prime Minister of India is facing multiple attacks from almost every political party since demonetisation. PM Modi, however, has asked Bharatiya Janata Party leaders not to be swayed by opposition criticism
New Delhi: Showing his dismay over demonetisation, former Supreme Court Judge, Markandey Katju, has written an open letter on Facebook to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ,demanding withdrawal of the decision scrapping Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes. Calling it a reckless order, Katju wrote, “PM Modi reminds me of Mohd Bin Tughlaq.”
What else he wrote in an open letter to PM Modi?
- Do you realise how many problems it has created for the ordinary people throughout India?
- I have received telephone calls from friends in many cities complaining about it, and one can see about it on TV. Shopkeepers, taxi drivers, etc have been hit hard. There are traffic jams.
- A friend of mine telephoned from Mumbai saying he was not able to buy Bisleri water bottles worth 200 rupees because his 500 rupee note was not accepted. A person who had to meet me today telephoned that he cannot come as he does not have 100 rupee notes to pay for the taxi.
- Your chamchas will of course not tell you this, and instead applaud you for this ‘masterstroke,’ but being your ”shubh chintak” (well-wisher) I am taking the liberty of telling you the truth
- Because of your nitwit order, hawala dealers have been created in large numbers, who are doing flourishing business.
- These people will take a 500 rupee note and give four hundred rupee notes
