Masses with govt, opposition's protest to fail tomorrow: BJP

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Claiming that the masses were with the government on demonetisation, today voiced confidence that the protest called by certain opposition parties tomorrow will not be successful and said parties like were already retreating and not calling it a 'bandh'.

"It is quite evident that the country is united and with us on demonetisation. There are only a few parties who have supported the call for 'bandh'. Those who were raising their voices earlier are also stepping back in fear now," Union minister Babul Supriyo told reporters at the headquarters.



"Even if it's a 'bandh', there can be attempts of violence or unruly behaviour. The administration will be alert and all arrangements will be in place to avoid any unfortunate situation," he added.

Supriyo attacked leader for tweeting an old video clip where the Union minister is seen allegedly being beaten up by the people while he had gone to take part in a protest.

"Spreading this video by retweeting himself...The is not realising that it is not helping itself, but us," he said.

Earlier in the day, the clarified that it had not called for a 'bandh' tomorrow, but will stage protests across the country against the Centre's decision to demonetise high-value currency notes, which it alleged was a "political move being sold as a fight against corruption".

While a "united opposition" attacked the Centre in Parliament last week over the "poor implementation" of the step, some of the parties have called for a nationwide strike tomorrow in protest against the move.

Meanwhile, Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu took a jibe at the for planning to stage protests tomorrow.

"is clearly rattled by certain transformational results...This is the clear reason for it being angry," he said.

"Realising the popular support to remonetisation, it is now calling its countrywide 'akrosh' rallies. From this, it is clear that all of this is aimed at finding some space in the media as it has clearly lost its space at the debating forum of Parliament and in the minds of the people," Naidu added.
