Arvind Kejriwal argues to withdraw demonetisation, demands SC probe
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday moved resolution in the state assembly urging President Pranab Mukherjee to direct the Central government to withdraw the demonetisation scheme.
Addressing Vidhan Sabha, Kejriwal also demanded a Supreme Court-monitored probe into the entire exercise, adding he condemns the way Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chosen to demonetise currency in the country.
Kejriwal had called for an emergency assembly session on Tuesday to discuss the demonetisation issue.
The AAP supremo has been continuously criticising the demonetisation move ever since Modi announced the decision last week.
Kejriwal earlier accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of using his mother for politics after Modi’s mother went to a bank to exchange the demonetised currency.

Kejriwal had criticiced the NDA government of selectively leaking the details of the ban on high denomination currencies to BJP and its friends. He also said it is not the surgical strike on black money but on the common people of the country, he added.
Kejriwal said: “Before the PM announced the move on Tuesday, the BJP, and its friends had been alerted and they had already stashed their cash.”
“A huge scam has been perpetrated a few days ago in the name of tackling corruption. When the PM announced the move, he had informed all of his friends who had black money and they secured their money,” the Aam Aadmi Chief added.
