2nd anniv of DeMo: Mumbai Congress observes black day

Mumbai, Nov 9 (UNI) The city unit of Congress observed a 'black day' on Friday, to mark the second anniversary of November 8, 2016 (Demonetisation exercise) and warned that the move would destroy the ruling BJP in the 2019 elections.
Leading a large number of party activists at the protests, Congress city president Sanjay Nirupam listed out the failures of BJP government, which had made life miserable for the masses, he charged.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi had requested the people of the country for 50 days. He also said if his (demonetisation) decision proved wrong within that time-frame, then the people of the country could hang him publicly," Mr Nirupam recalled.
However, more than 700 days have passed and the people of India are angry and agitated now as the Prime Minister has kept quiet on the matter since then, he added.
"They will not hang the Prime Minister physically, but finish him off politically in the upcoming elections. Thousands of industries have shut down, youth have lost their jobs, over 100 innocents lost their lives in queues outside banks because of demonetisation, which benefited only BJP president Amit Shah," the MRCC chief thundered.
Citing figures of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Mr Nirupam said that against the actual black money figures of around Rs 10,000 crore, Mr Modi demonetised the entire currency worth more than Rs 15 lakh crore at one shot, throwing the country into disarray.
"Even after two years, the common man continues to battle the aftermath of spiking the Rs 1000-Rs 500 notes, while the promised terrorism and Maoist attacks have not stopped and our soldiers continue to sacrifice their lives at the borders," he added.
