Mamata, Kejriwal slam demonetisation; say corruption won

West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee along with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal" addressed a rally of traders, farmers and labourers at Azadpur Mandi on Thursday.

Banerjee while taking a dig at the government on the chaos of demonetisation, said that this government does not trust people of the country. She further went on to question government saying, "Is everybody a thief?"

She said," They have even reduced the daily withdrawal limit, the same government used to say acche din aayenge." She further claimed that even transport sector has come to a halt, also saying that only 4 per cent of the people use plastic money, and farmers don't use credit cards.

Addressing the gathering, Kejriwal said: "I had raised the name of Robert Vadra at a time when people were scared to take his name." I will be at the forefront of every fight against black money, he added.

Demanding a roll-back, Mamata Banerjee and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have been criticising the government since the day PM Modi announced the ban on old Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes.

“Mamata Banerjee will also be addressing the rally at Azadpur Mandi. All of you do come,” the CM tweeted on Wednesday, soon after he announced that he will address the rally at 11.30 am on Thursday.

“At the rally, Kejriwal will expose the big scam that is demonetisation. While the common man has to face so much hardship in queues, those with black money are going scot-free,” an official AAP statement read.
