As the government’s demonetisation move completes three months, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) MPs will hold a protest at the Gandhi statue in Parliament at 10:30 am on Wednesday. TMC is not letting go a single opportunity to target the Centre over demonetization move.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has said that the country has lost its economic freedom after the ‘visionless’ drive. Only few rich capitalists are not going through any issues, the WB CM said.
“Today, three months over. Restrictions and sufferings not over. Citizens have lost economic freedom. When economic freedom is lost, the main freedom is lost. Only few rich capitalists are not suffering. Commoners, middle class, downtrodden, poorest continue to suffer,” she tweeted.
She also said that the economy has hindered extremely and the nation is facing an acute economic crisis. “How much longer? DeMo-ReMo derailed the nation. Visionless, missionless, directionless. Today three months,” she added.
TMC has been protesting against the drive ever since it was announced and urging the Centre to rollback its decision.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the government was always ready for the debate on the issue but the opposition was only interested in TV bytes. The decision on demonetisation is a drive to clean India from corruption and black money, he said adding the timing for the implementation of the decision was right as the economy was doing well.
