To counter rumour mongering and statements made by the opposition parties against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's bold demonetisation move against black money, Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Vijay Goel today led a 'Janta Ka March' in Paharganj area here. Several people and members of various organisations took part in the march and voiced their support for Prime Minister's with a banner "Youth Against Black Money". Goel led 'padyatras' and visited each shop to create awareness among the traders and business communities about digital modes of payment and transactions which will help them to continue their business in a simplified way and would bring in transparency and strengthen economy of the nation. Trade unions hailed PM Modi's move and declared that they would keep their shops open and pay no heed to Opposition's demand for Bharat Bandh on November 28, 2016. Goel said that the so called Bharat Bandh has already "failed" and started the march by sweeping away fake currency with a broom which he described as the second Swachhta Abhiyan after PM's first Swachhta Abhiyan against garbage. Talking to media, Goel said, "One man is determined to clean the nation and make it free from black money and corruption but few parties and their leaders with vested interests are hell bent to create problems for the government and safeguarding the corrupt". Goel added that there will be more padyatras to create awareness among the masses and deter the negative propaganda and series of lies being spread by the Opposition parties to misguide the public.
