Addressing an event, BJP's Jammu and Kashmir state unit president Sat Sharma said those "who were involved in scams from 2G to coal gate and looted public money" were raising a hue and cry over demonetisation.
In a statement, he said that the NDA government had taken the step last year to curb the menace of black money and corruption.
