Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi and Congratulated him for the demonetisation decision.
Mufit, whose party is in alliance with BJP in Jammu and Kashmir said that the demonetisation move is not ordinary. “It will cause some inconvenience to people but it will turn out to be historic for the country,” Mehbooba said.
Mufit discussed the situation in the Kashmir valley with the Prime Minister and apprised him of security measures.
Mufti’s backing of demonetisation has come at a time when the opposition parties are holding nationwide protests against the Narendra Modi government’s November 8 decision to demonetise high-value currency notes.
While most of the political leader have criticised the demonetisation and its poor implementation Bihar Chief Minister and Janata Dal (United) leader Nitish Kumar along with Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had openly supported the bold decision aimed at curbing black money, terrorism and corruption.
