Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Saturday went live on Facebook to voice his opposition to the Centre’s move to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

“The Rs 2,000 note makes it that much easier for the corrupt to hoard cash and use it to pay bribes… The Modi government has already waived off loans worth Rs 1,14,000 crore and now wants to waive off the Rs 7,00,000 crore left. This entire demonetisation exercise has been to ensure that people deposit all their money into banks, which will make it possible for these loans to be waived off,” he said.

BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad hit back: “After the demonetisation move, we were sure that some political parties with unaccounted money would be badly hurt. But the anguish shown by AAP shows that it has been hurt the most.”

        Why Modi Govt did not stop hundreds of crores of Political Funding given in Cash . Modi's own BJP party refuses to come under the purview of RTI act with respect to funds it receives. Poor people dont know and will never know that first things needed to be done first. They are being only sacrificial lambs.
