Demonetisation is Tughlaq like: Congress leader


Panaji : Congress leader Shobha Oza dubbed as “Tughlaq like” some of the orders issued by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the wake of demonetisation decision. “For last one month we have seen several new ‘Tughlaq ke farman’ from the Prime Minister. First they (government) said you can exchange upto Rs 4,000, which was later changed to Rs 4,500 and then Rs 2,000. At the end of the day it is the common man, farmer, students, housewives who are suffering,” All India Mahila Congress President Oza told reporters on Saturday.

  “It is their hard earned money which has nothing to do with black money. Today to withdraw their own money, people have to stand in queue for hours. More than 100 people have died in the queues. In the entire world nowhere any person has been stopped from withdrawing his own money,” she said adding “If anyone forgets to read a newspaper for a day, he will not know what new directive has been issued by the government.”
