People will punish PM Modi in LS polls for note ban: Mumbai

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Demonetisation was a "black day" and the people would teach a lesson in the 2019 polls, Mumbai said Friday.

He said that PM Modi, who had at the time asked people to give him 50 days (till December 30, 2016) to deliver the benefits of the note ban exercise, was not speaking about demonetisation now as it had failed completely.

"More than 600 days have passed, but the Prime Minister has refrained from speaking about the decision of demonetisation ever since," Nirupam said.

He claimed small scale industries had shut down, youth had lost jobs and 150 people lost their lives standing in bank queues.

"People of the country will teach Modi a lesson in the upcoming polls, Nirupam said.

People were told by the government that demonetisation would end terrorism and Naxalism, the said.

"On the contrary, jawans are being killed at the border and in Naxal attacks," he said.
