The opposition-sponsored 'Bharat Bandh' scheduled to be held tomorrow to protest against the Centre's demonetisation of Rs.500 and Rs.1000 currency notes, has been hit by a decision of the Janata Dal (United) not to participate.
This decision was taken in a meeting chaired by the party president Nitish Kumar, who has praised the Prime Minister for taking this bold step.
He said that he doesn't oppose the demonetisation drive, but wants the government to check the inconvenience caused to the public
In Haryana, Indian National Lok Dal president Ashok Arora has also announced that the party, instead of supporting the 'Bandh', will highlight the problems being faced by the people due to demonetisation and hold demonstrations before submitting memorandums to the administration.
