Amit Shah slams opposition for criticising demonetisation

IANS  |  Bhubaneswar 

A day after former Prime Minister criticised the for "the mess", President on Friday said those whose black money will be lost in the move are pained.

"Those have black money, they will feel the pain. Till November 7, they (opposition parties) were asking what has Modi done about black money. Now they ask why have you done this for black money," said Shah addressing the Bharatiya Janata Party's "Jan Jagran Maha Samavesh" in Bhubaneswar.

Shah said the move has united the arch rivals in the opposition. He said they were climbing the same tree like rats, cats and snakes to escape the "demonetisation flood".

"Imagine there is a flood in Mahanadi river and there is a banyan tree on it. The cat, mouse, snake and mongoose climb the same tree. But when all climb the tree, neither cat eats the rat nor is he scared of the animal. The mongoose does not attack the snake and the snake does not attack the mongoose. Each of them is waiting for the floodwaters to recede," Shah said.

"After the demonetisation move, Congress, Mamata Banerjee (TMC), Arvind Kejriwal (AAP), Mayawati (BSP) and Yadav (SP) have climbed the tree and are waiting for Modi's 'demonetisation flood' to recede," he added.
