Congress to raise note ban in winter session of Maharashtra legislature


Mumbai: The winter session of Maharashtra legislature beginning in Nagpur on December 5 is likely to be stormy as the opposition Congress is planning to put the Devendra Fadnavis government on mat over the demonetisation exercise and the “distress” it has caused to common people.

A core committee meeting of the Congress was held at Vidhan Bhavan here today to discuss the floor management strategy of the party.

“The hardships faced by the common man due to demonetisation will be our priority. Apart from the common man, farmers are also suffering as the RBI has banned district cooperative banks from accepting and exchanging demonetised currency. We will raise this issue aggressively in both Upper and Lower House during the session,” senior leader Arif Naseem Khan said
