Cong holds protest rallies in Chhattisgarh

Press Trust of India  |  Raipur 

today organised rallies at district headquarters in state as part of 'Jan Akrosh Diwas' to protest against the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and alleged common people are bearing the brunt of the "draconian" decision.

Left parties andAam Aadmi Party also staged protests.



Leaders and workers of the Congress, which is the main opposition party in the state, joined a 'Jan Akrosh' rally from the party's headquarter at here, which passed through main roads before concluding at the starting point.

Addressing a gathering at Jai Stambh Chowk, state unit president, Bhupesh Baghel alleged Prime Minister Modi's decision of banning Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes without any prior preparation has put the entire countrymen into trouble.

"Labourers are facing hardship to earn two times meal. Women are worried. All businesses have been paralysed for last 20 days. It clearly appears that neither is being unearthed nor corruption is being controlled.

"The decision is nothing but just an attempt to divert attention of the people from the failure of the Modi government. This draconian decision has brought the situation of economic crises in the country," Baghel said.

Separate rallies were led by the leader of opposition in Legislative Assembly, TS Singhdeo at Sarguja district and by former Union minister Dr Charandas Mahant at Korba district headquarter.

CPI (M) and CPI staged a protest in front of SBI main branch at Jaistambh Chowk here wherein their workers raised slogans against demonetisation.

AAP workers took out a rally from Ambedkar Chowk to Jai Stambh and distributed pamphlets among people against the scrapping of higher value currency notes.
