No link between demonetisation and BJP's poll victory: MP Cong

Press Trust of India  |  Indore 

today claimed that the Centre's decision had nothing to do with the BJP's victory in Shahdol and Nepanagar Assembly by-polls in the state.

Speaking to reporters here, state chief Arun Yadav said, "Polling in Shahdol and Nepanagar was held only 11 days after the announcement of demonetisation."



"Both were scheduled tribe-dominated seats and there was no talk of among the common people...So, to link the poll with the decision is not correct," he said, adding that the ruling party always had an advantage in the by-polls.

"We will review the and take corrective measures soon," the leader said.

Yadav, however, claimed that will have its impact in the 2018 Assembly in Madhya Pradesh.

Criticising Prime Minister Modi for the decision, he said the people, especially housewives, farmers and labourers, were facing the brunt of it.

Asked about the controversial writings on the graves of the SIMI activists who were killed in an alleged police encounter after a jailbreak, Yadav said the state government should probe the entire issue in detail.
