DeMo 2nd anniv: 79 pc daily wage workers in Gurgaon lost jobs, claims Congress

Chandigarh, Nov 9 (UNI) The Haryana unit of Congress, which on Friday led a protest before the Mini Secretariat at Fatehabad here against the 'autocratic' decision of demonetisation announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, 2016, said that in Gurgaon alone, 79 per cent daily wage workers have lost their jobs.
Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPCC) president Ashok Tanwar, who led the agitation, said that two years earlier, the sudden and autocratic announcement of demonetisation by the Prime Minister, has put the country in great problems.
According to Dr Tanwar, the PM had announced that demonetisation was aimed at curbing black money, blocking fake currency and wiping out terror and naxal funding in the country, but the decision failed on all these fronts and there has been an increase in the circulation of fake currency and rise in terrorism.
He said that similar dharnas have also been organised at all district headquarters of Haryana by the Congress Party against DeMo.
The former MP said the demonetisation has made unparalleled damage to the national economy.
While millions of workers have been rendered jobless, 120 innocent people lost their lives, just trying to get their old bank notes changed, he added.
The PCC chief said, "The autocratic decision of DeMo by Modi was a well-planned conspiracy to benefit his crony tycoons in converting their black-money to white. By this conspiracy, the hard-earned money of the common man was got deposited in the banks and crony tycoons were given big bank loans to fly away abroad.

"The RBI has itself admitted that 99.30 per cent old bank notes have come back to the banks, so this is a mystery where the black money has gone," he added.
Dr Tanwar said that demonetisation is the biggest scam after Independence, which has put the national economy to a loss of three lakh crore rupees and only the Prime Minister is responsible for this. He said people of the country are feeling the pain of this damage in their hearts and they are determined to give its proper reply by their votes.
