Mamata blasts demonetisation again

Kolkata, Nov. 12 (PTI): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Saturday repeated the demand for withdrawal of demonetisation, labelling it a “black” political decision that is against the common people.

”This has turned out to be a big black scandal. Hardship for the common citizens and full advantage to the money launderers,” she tweeted.

“I have said this before, but given the way the young, old and everyone is suffering let me again appeal to the Central government. . .” Mamata tweeted.

”Withdraw this 'black' political decision which is anti-commoner. Markets across India ruined, purchasing power crashing, people pained,” she tweeted.

The Trinamool chief on Thursday had called upon all Opposition parties to work together against the “anti-poor government at the Centre”.

”Let us fight this political and financial anarchy together. We will be with you all,” Mamata had said.

Mocking the prime minister, she had said Narendra Modi ”has gone to Japan after making the people poor in India”.

The Trinamool Congress has already given a notice in the Rajya Sabha for a discussion on the demonetisation issue on November 16, the opening day of winter session of Parliament.

Sudip Bandopadhyay, TMC leader in Lok Sabha, has said the party would bring an adjournment motion in the House on the same day.

Mamata also penned a poem on the demonetisation issue, which she shared on twitter.
