Demonetisation second freedom for country: Anupriya Patel

Press Trust of India  |  Amethi 

Union minister Anupriya Patel today termed of high-value currency notes "second freedom" for the country.

She said that Prime Minister Modi's main aim is to minimise and then eliminate the difference between the rich and poor and root out corruption.

"If is voted to power in Uttar Pradesh, people will be free from the misrule and corrupt practices of the government whichhas looted the state in a organised manner," the MoS for Health Anupriya Patel claimed.

Addressing a 'rally' here, she also hit out at the state government on the "deteriorating" and order situation in the state.

Hitting out at chief and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, she alleged that the 'bua and bhatija' "nexus" had caused unemployment among youths and pushed the farming sector of the state backward.

"got freedom in 1947, but the people in Amethi hardly got the taste of freedom as they were mostly led by the raj gharana," she said and asked people to make the state free of the "most corrupt Yadav family".

Attacking the SP-led state government for its "gundaraj", she alleged that the state has been lagging in many aspects and termed Akhilesh Yadav's rule as the "worst".
