Note Nahi, PM Badlo, says CM Kejriwal on demonetisation
New Delhi: Intensifying Aam Aadmi Party's protest against demonetisation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday asked people to change the Prime Minister in place of scrapped currency notes. AAP also announced a march to the parliament tomorrow to oppose the decision.
Countering Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis' statement that those who are opposing the decision were anti-national, he claimed that people supporting the NDA government's move are against the country and its citizens.
Kejriwal attacked PM Modi asking him to come clear on his relations with a mobile wallet company, claiming that its profits have seen huge growth since demonetisation came into effect.
"Note nahi, PM Badlo (Change PM, not note)...Fadnavis ji, fire is raging across the country following the decision of the Prime Minister. The person who is standing with the PM on this would be against the country and the citizens," tweeted the Delhi CM, who is in Punjab for AAP's elections campaigns.
He followed up with another tweet demanding to either waive off farmers' loans or deposit Rs 10,000 in each Jan Dhan account using the money submitted by people across the country since November 10, when the banking resumed post the ban on Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.
Earlier, Kejriwal, terming the demonetisation "a massive scam", had set a three-day deadline to roll back the order. He is also scheduled to conduct rallies in Varanasi, Meerut and Lucknow in December to attack the government over the issue.
The three-day deadline expired on Sunday and AAP claimed that tomorrow's march to Parliament is a part of their plan to carry forward the momentum of its battle against demonetisation.
The march, which is to start from Jantar Mantar at 11.30 AM, would be joined by several Delhi cabinet ministers and would be led by deputy CM Manish Sisodia.
