Demonetisation: The government accused the Opposition of being interested only for “two minutes” for “television coverage” .
During their protest as part of “Jan Aakrosh Diwas” against demonetization, seven Left parties decried the invalidation of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes as “anti-poor and pro-corporate”.
Yechury said demonetisation would have a deep impact on the Indian economy on a medium term basis as it would take at least six months for things to settle down.
Rahul Gandhi at Opposition meeting says, ‘PM is in new form, can’t call him super PM… will have to coin a new word’.
Both the House of Parliament were adjourned amid demand from opposition that Modi respond to the debate on demonetisation.
Yechury said that RBI guidelines” to prove Jaitley’s observation on NPAs wrong and said there is a clear RBI guidelines on performing assets becoming NPAs.
Yechury questioned if demonetisation will serve its stated purpose of dealing a blow to terror funding as, he said, “no one carries bags to fund terrorism, it is more via online transfers”.
Sitaram Yechury had earlier raised objections to the outfit, Overseas Friends of BJP, Malaysia, making such a declaration through a poster and written to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
The poster, Yechury said, declares the organisation’s June 19 event is being supported by High Commission of India, Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Ayush and Indian Council of Cultural Relations.
CPI went into terminal decline when it compromised with the Congress in 1969-1970. In 2016, CPM is being destroyed because it abandoned principle in search of a cheap return ticket to power.
Within hours of the debacle, the Sitaram Yechury-Prakash Karat fault line in the CPM deepened with Karat making clear that the electoral tie-up in West Bengal was “their tactics” and did not have approval of the the party central leadership.
In the 2011 elections, TMC had a 39 per cent vote share — as did the combined vote shares of the Congress and Left.
On the Narada sting operation, Yechury alleged that it could not have happened without the patronisation of the party leadership.
Yechury wrote to the poll panel registering “strong condemnation over the continued violence, terror and intimidation unleashed by the ruling Trinamool Congress party in West Bengal”.
