IANS  |  Patna 

Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan on Sunday thanked for supporting Prime Minister Modi's decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes to fight the black money menace.

"We welcome and thank for supporting Prime Minister Modi's decision," Paswan, who heads the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), told media persons here.

He also targeted Janata Dal-United leader Nitish Kumar's allies Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and the Congress in Bihar.

"RJD and Congress should withdraw from the alliance if they disagree with Nitish Kumar's stand to support Modi's decision to demonetise the 500 and 1,000 rupee notes," he said.

Besides supporting Modi's decision, also urged the Prime Minister to act against people having 'benami' (by proxy) properties.
