PM Modi lambasts Opposition for bandh call in Kushinagar
Hitting out at Opposition parties for calling ‘Bharat Bandh’ against demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said they are organising the strike at a time when he is trying to root out corruption and black money.
Addressing a rally in eastern Uttar Pradesh, the PM said: ” I am stopping black money and corruption and some are giving call for Bharat Bandh.”
At the BJP’s ‘Parivartan Yatra’ rally Kushinagar, Modi said: “We are trying to curb corruption and they are organising ‘Bharat Bandh’. Should there be ‘Bharat Bandh’ or should the route of corruption be blocked?”
Opposition leaders from across the country have given a call for ‘Akrosh Diwas’ tomorrow to protest against the Centre’s demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes.
The PM said the decision on demonetisation was tough, “but (the) future will be bright”. Reacting to the difficulties face by the common people including villagers in withdrawing money, PM advised to take the e-wallet route.
