While expressing their dissatisfaction over Demonetisation, Mumbai Congress on Friday observed ‘Black Day’ to mark their protest at Azad Maidan. On the second anniversary of demonetisation, Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said, “We will kill PM Modi politically in the upcoming polls next year”. 

After PM Modi announced demonetisation on November 8, 2016, he had promised that in 50 days, people’s inconvenience would be resolved and if his decision is proven to be wrong, people can hang him publicly. 

More than 600 days have passed but the Prime Minister has refrained to speak regarding his decision to demonetise old currency notes. Due to demonetisation, small-scale industries were affected and almost 150 civilians died while standing in the queue outside banks. The common people are angry today and they will kill PM Modi politically in the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections,” said Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam while addressing the gathering.

Earlier, RBI revealed that 99 per cent of the demonetised notes were returned to the banks and demonetisation of currency notes worth ₹15,00,000 crore was done to cater only ₹10,000 crore of the black money in the market.

Nirupam said that only BJP leaders and Modi’s few friends were benefited from demonetisation while the common man suffered. “Modi said that demonetisation will end the terrorism in our country but the opposite has happened. Our soldiers are dying on the border,” added Nirupam.

Calling demonetisation a complete failure, Mumbai Mahila Congress President Ajanta Yadav, former State Cabinet Minister Chandrakant Handore, former MLA Ashok Bhau Jadhav and others participated in the protest.
