Cong rally on demonetisation anniversary


On the third anniversary of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's drastic demonetisation decision, that removed almost 86 per cent of currency in circulation, the Congress has come down hard on the NDA Government over its management of the economy.

It also accused the government of 'tactless decisions' that "led to the death of close to 100 people across the country".

The Congress is on a 10-day protest against the ‘economic failures’ of the government including demonetisation. It will also hold a joint rally along with other opposition parties at the Ramlila Ground in Delhi on December 1.

The Youth Congress also protested outside the office of Reserve Bank of India in the capital against the government’s move, blaming it for the economic slowdown. Protesters carrying placards were stopped near RBI office by the police.

"The protest is to seek an apology from the Modi government for implementing demonetisation which was a self-inflicted wound on the Indian economy," YC president Srinivas B V was quoted as saying.
