Bihar CM supports, deputy CM slams Centre's demonetisation step
Patna: Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Tejaswi Yadav on Friday said that the Centre should have made proper arrangements before taking the demonetisation step as people are now severely affected with the decision.
The RJD leader also questioned the timing of the announcement as he said that decision comes when assembly elections in several states are a couple of months away.
Tejaswi, however, said that his party is in support of every decision which has been taken in the view of curbing black money menace.
What else Tejaswi Yadav said?
- Centre took the decision of demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes in a "haste".
- The step has left common people severely affected.
- Modi's decision has hindered the day-to-day activities of a common man.
- The Centre and RBI should have made all arrangements keeping in view the problems to be faced by the public.
- There are long queues at ATM counters, bank branches and petrol pumps.
- Small shopkeepers are unable to carry out their business.
Tejaswi slams Modi's timing:
- Since two-and-a-half year, Modi is holding the Prime Minister's chair.
- What is his government doing to bring back the black money?
- BJP also politicized the surgical strike issue.
- They are again doing the same for poll benefits.
It may be mentioned that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had lauded the Centre for scrapping the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. He said that people may face some problems in initial days, but it would help the country at large in the longer run.
