PM Thanks People For Support, Tweets Video on Note Ban Benefits
Wednesday, 8 November, marks one year since Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s big surprise announcement to scrap Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes. The Congress-led Opposition, which has heavily criticised demonetisation over the past year, will launch nationwide protests to observe what has labelled ‘Black Day’. Meanwhile, BJP stalwarts, including Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley, are busy defending demonetisation and its benefits.

Rahul Gandhi attacks Modi, says PM’s ‘thoughtless act’ destroyed livelihoods of honest Indians
On demonetization’s first-anniversary, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi hit-out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, livelihoods of millions of Indians were destroyed by PM’s thoughtless act.
“Demonetisation is a tragedy. We stand with millions of honest Indians, whose lives and livelihoods were destroyed by PM’s thoughtless act,” said Rahul Gandhi in a tweet.
The Congress and other Opposition parties have also planned countrywide protests in the form of processions, rallies, and candle-light marches to mark the first demonetization anniversary on Wednesday, as their leaders would observe it as ‘black day’
The Congress, which described the note ban decision as the ‘biggest scam’ and ‘the largest government-abetted money laundering scheme’, has asked all its state units to organise protests, processions and marches to mark the day.
It has also asked all its leaders to participate in such protests and ‘strongly’ highlight the demerits of the decision, which it said is a ‘colossal and completely avoidable failure’.
The Congress, on its website, also put out an article on demonetization, dubbing it as a “Modi-Made Disaster”.
