Mumbai: Mumbai Congress on Friday observed ‘Black Day’ under the leadership of city Congress President Sanjay Nirupam on the second anniversary of demonetisation. Sanjay Nirupam also listed the failures of the BJP govt and urged the people to vote for the Congress Party for a better future.
Attacking PM Narendra Modi Sanjay Nirupam said, “The PM requested the people of the country for 50 days. He also stated that if this decision is proven to be wrong within the said time frame, people can hang him publicly. More than 600 days have passed, but the Prime Minister has refrained from speaking about the decision of demonetisation ever since. Small scale industries were shut, youngsters lost their jobs,150 innocent people lost their lives while standing in the queue outside banks.
The only person who was benefitted from PM Modi’s decision of demonetisation was Amit Shah. The common people of the country are agitated today. They will not hang the PM physically but will kill him politically in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections.” Sanjay Nirupam further stated, “The RBI later revealed that money worth Rs 10,000 crore was the actual amount of black money for which currency worth Rs 15,00,000 crore was demonetised.
The PM also assured the people of the country that terrorism and naxalism will come to an end once demonetisation was introduced. However, exactly opposite of what was promised has happened. Our jawans are being killed at the border, attacks by naxalists, maoists and terrorists have increased manifolds in the country. This depicts a massive failure of PM Modi’s decision of demonetisation. Even after two years since this destructive move of the PM hit the country, the common man is battling its aftermath even today.
