BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav said that the opposition can do whatever they want to do as people of the country will support the endeavour of 'Kala Dhan Bandh.'
"Let them decide what they want to do. The country wants bandh of black money and corruption. And, against this endeavour which is aimed towards combatting the menace of black money and corruption, the opposition wants to do a Bharat Bandh. I am quite confident that country is not going to support them," said Madhav.
However, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad denied that the opposition has called for an all-India bandh against demonetisation and said that no political outfit has spoken of such an endeavour.
Addressing the BJP's Parivartan Rally in Kushinagar in eastern Uttar Pradesh, the Prime Minister said, "On the one hand we are initiating steps to curb corruption, but on the other hand, a few people are talking about 'Bharat Bandh'."
He described demonetisation as a cure to the 70-year-old disease of corruption.
