Demonetisation anniversary: BJP and Congress release their version of the story

After a year of Modi-led demonetisation, rivals BJP and Congress give their take on the subject


Indians will never forget November 8, 2016, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi acted boldly and announced ‘demonetisation’ of INR 500 and INR 1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi series. It caused a mass stir across the nation with some criticising the BJP-led government, while some praised Modi’s masterstroke.

Opposition political setups bashed Modi and his demonetisation move but the PM held his ground and aims to get rid of the black money in India. As we mark the demonetisation anniversary, the rival political parties still hold their ground and continue to debate over the move.

Congress and BJP have released a video on this occasion of the demonetisation anniversary which supports their claim on the subject
