New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared that his fight against corruption and black-money will continue till his last breath, whatever the opposition may say on withdrawal of high denomination currency notes.
In a tweet from Japan where he has gone on a three-day visit he has said that the motive behind the move was to rob those who had stacked crores of high value notes through illegal means and make the country corruption-free.
Contrary to the opposition charge, the decision will help the poor and bring down prices. Houses constructed by private builders will be cheaper. The move may also impact other areas and improve availability of goods and services at cheaper rates.
The Prime Minister has appreciated the patience shown by the people and help extended by banks and other agencies to get over the temporary crisis. He has asked them to bear with the government for the time being. The tweet appeared on Thursday, his first day of his Japan visit.
He said, "He is so happy to learn that citizens are expressing their gratitude to bankers & getting notes exchanged in a very patient & orderly manner."
A long queue has been seen in all the banks, private or public, and some of the banks have run out of cash due to heavy demand but there was no angry protest by customers in any part. In some areas senior citizens were helped by youngsters in every possible way.
Modi has praised these efforts. "It is also heartening to learn that people are actively volunteering to help senior citizens withdraw money & exchange their currencies".
In conclusion he has assured the people that no criticism will unnerve him. "I assure you the Government will not waver in its effort to create an India that is corruption free . It will see that fruits of development touch every citizen."
