'People will never need black money if society comes together'

Press Trust of India  |  Surat 

In an apparent attack on political rivals and those opposing the Centre's drive, President today said people are happy with the scrapping of high-value notes and maintained no one would ever need black money if society comes together.

Speaking at a mass marriage ceremony of Ahir community organised at Ghodadara area here, the chief said a "huge controversy" has been created out of the crunch post of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.



"I am particularly happy to be here because Ahir community organised this mass-wedding programme at a time when it has been claimed people are not getting money due to the move. A huge controversy has been created out of it," said Shah.

"Do you see any pain on anyone's face present here (due to crisis)?" Shah asked, as newly-wed couples and guests replied saying "no".

It was the 24th mass-wedding ceremony of the Ahir community where 229 couples tied the knot in Shah's presence.

"This function is a perfect example to give a message that people will never need black money if society comes together," Shah asserted.
