BJP should declare polls as referendum on demonetisation, challenges Sachin Pilot

�If BJP is so confident that demonetisation has helped in checking terrorism, black money, Naxalism, drugs then it should declare it as a referendum in the poll-bound five states,� the former union minister Sachin Pilot said.

BJP should declare polls as referendum on demonetisation, challenges Sachin Pilot

Challenging the BJP to declare assembly polls in five states as a referendum on demonetisation, Congress leader Sachin Pilot said that note ban policy brought instability in the country.

“If BJP is so confident that demonetisation has helped in checking terrorism, black money, Naxalism, drugs then it should declare it as a referendum in the poll-bound five states,” the former union minister said.

"Even leaders from BJP are openly admitting that demonetisation is a failed move”, Pilot said.


Pilot demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should tell the public who is responsible for the deaths of 125 people, who lost their lives while standing in the queue to withdraw money from banks.

Demanding a white paper from ruling Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP in Punjab on the issues of farmers suicides, drugs, industry and debt, he said “People of Punjab have rejected the SAD-BJP alliance and made up their mind to form a Congress government. Shiv Sena (in Maharashtra) has left BJP and after Punjab polls, Akalis will also dump the saffron party.”

While hitting out at Aam Aadmi Party, Pilot accused the AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal of not fulfilling the constitutional responsibility that the people of Delhi had given to him.

He alleged that Delhi CM and his all MLAs are campaigning in Punjab and Goa, by ignoring the national capital and public money of Delhi is being “wasted” by AAP on its poll campaign in the two states.

Pilot also attacked AAP for “dumping” the party’s founders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav.
