Old Notes Should Be Valid- CPI M
The Polit Bureau of the CPI M has demanded the validity of the old currency notes should continue, till alternative arrangements are completed . Expressing serious concern at the hardships faced by the ordinary people, the party accused the government of handling the demonitisation drive in a haphazard manner.
The party politburo said in a statement that, the day to day life of every section of the common people has been thrown out of gear because the government had not taken the requisite and appropriate steps in advance to meet the contingency. ‘Workers are not being paid wages, people are unable to purchase essential commodities, vegetables and medicines, unable to undertake travel etc due to non-availability of cash’ the statement continues .
CPIM demands that the validity of the old currency notes should continue till alternative arrangements are completed. The party will conduct protest actions across the country to force the government to put in place measures to ease the situation.
