Kolkata : TMC supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is not against demonetisation per se, but the way it is being implemented, said Yoga guru Ramdev.
“I praise Mamata Banerjee because she is very simple and stays in a cottage and wears hawai chappals. I think she is not opposed to the demonetisation move per se. But I feel she is not happy the way it was implemented,” he said at the Infocom seminar here. Banerjee has
been most vocal among opposition parties against demonetisation.
The Yoga guru-cum-entrepreneur said, “I had planted the seeds of demonetisation. I continued the movement from 2009 to 2014 and asked the government to withdraw Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes as it was the root cause of corruption, black money, terror and militant funding”.
