Crisis over demonetisation to hopefully end by Jan 2017: Chandrababu Naidu
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday expressed that the ongoing controversies and currency crisis in the aftermath of note ban would end by January 2017 and opined that there need for all to work collectively to alleviate the problems of people.
Addressing a press conference, Naidu said December was a “crucial” month in the current scenario. Naidu was recently appointed as the Convenor of a 13-member committee to look into all issues related to demonetisation.
Naidu said: “December is a crucial month. I hope by January this problem will ease out. By (Sankranti) festival time, things should be normal.”
“This is a major issue which concerns everyone. To solve this problem, we have to think collectively. Ultimately, the common man is the sufferer and to end his woes, a collective effort is needed,” Naidu added.
Naidu said they would discuss and decide the date when asked the committee would meet.
“There are chief ministers, experts and NITI Aayog members in the committee. When we all sit, we will discuss what to do and work out ways to go forward,” he added.
The Chief Minister also said that Andhra Pradesh has already developed certain models for transformation into a digital economy soon.
“We are in an advanced stage, in terms of technology, mobile penetration and other things. If we can logically take this forward, there will be better results. Even a backward and illiterate country like Kenya has maximum mobile currency. We have to adopt such best practices,” he said.
