PM Modi facing threat to life after demonetisation: Baba Ramdev
Yoga teacher Baba Ramdev lauds the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to demonetise Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes high value bank notes and said that the Prime Minister is facing threat to his life from drug mafia, terrorists and other economic offenders in the wake of this “historic” move.
Urging the people to cooperate with the government and bear the pain for a few days, Ramdev said said the whole exercise would ultimately improve the country’s economy.
Ramdev said: “By demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination notes, Modi has dealt a severe blow to corruption, black money, terrorism and fake currency business…Fake notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations were being printed in Pakistan and circulated in India. Phasing out these notes has destroyed the terrorists.”
“Due to this move, Modi is now facing threat to life from drug mafia, terrorists and also from those committing economic offences,” Ramdev told media-persons in Vadodara airport.
Ramdev reached there to attend 50th birthday celebrations of religious leader Shasht Peethadhishwar Goswami 108 Shree Dwarkeshlalji Maharaj.
He said even the business of his company, Patanjali Ayurved, has been hit by the demonetisation. “But people should cooperate with the Centre in this endeavour to clean up the system,” he said.
He said: “Some people are blaming the government as they are facing difficulties because of the sudden move. But it is going to improve the country’s overall economic condition. It will raise the growth rate of the economy, control inflation and bring down the prices of essential commodities, which will ultimately make people’s lives better.”
“Instead of blaming, I urge people to cooperate with the government in this endeavour to clean up the system. When there is a war, soldiers face many hardships and starve for weeks. Cannot we, for the welfare of the nation, endure these hardships for a few days?” he asked.
He also welcomed the decision to ban the cooperative banks from exchanging or depositing the now-defunct high denomination currency. “But the black money hoarders will devise some new strategy to stash their illegal wealth,” he said.
