The decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes was taken to curb corruption and black money. The decision has drawn a lot of flak from the opposition and common people as it has caused great inconvenience and chaos across the country.
Some of the questions asked for the survey on the Narendra Modi app are as follows:
- What do you think of the Modi government’s move of banning old Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes
- Do you have any suggestions, ideas or insights you would like to share with PM Narendra Modi.
- Did you mind the inconvenience faced in our fight to curb corruption, black money, terrorism and counterfeiting of currency?
- Do you think that black money exists in India?
Opposition parties, including the Congress and the Trinamool Congress on Monday raised slogans in the Lok Sabha and disrupted the proceeding of the house. The oppositions have asked Prime Minister to give the statement over demonetisation in the house. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge has claimed that that Prime Minister is shying away from the discussion.
