Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan today demanded that the Centre convene a meeting of state Chief Ministers to discuss 'post-note ban recession' and consequent problems following demonetisation.
In a Facebook post, he said "let's set aside our political differences and develop an action plan to improve the conditions of the small farmers, small businessmen'.
He also alleged that the Centre had not taken the states into confidence before announcing such a major step
So at least now Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be ready to call a meeting of Chief Ministers to discuss the issues, he said.
"I am not an economist or a banker and as of now do not intend to get into the technical or economics part and whether RBI 'gained' or 'lost' by this exercise, he said.
In reality, the poorly planned demonetisation has affected the poor and weak people, he added.
