Terming the Centre’s demonetisation of high-value currency notes as the “biggest disaster”, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has yet again demanded a thorough probe into the move. “As I said earlier, demonetisation is the biggest disaster. It has completely ruined the country’s economy. Also, GST is a great stunt.
Why did the government launch it in a hurry without making proper plans? The common people and all traders are the worst sufferers. A thorough investigation is needed,” Banerjee tweeted on Thursday.

Banerjee has been a fierce critic of demonetisation and has also voiced her opposition against the ‘hurried implementation’ of GST.

The West Bengal Chief Minister has described both demonetisation and GST as “economic blunders” on earlier occasions as well, and proclaimed that she stood by small traders and businessmen who were protested against it.

    Thank you for your courageous expression, Madam Chief Minister. Bothe 'demonisation' and GST are the high handedness of the Dictator. Thank you Madam

          Name-calling has no place in debate. One may dis-agree with her. But her arguments need to be met by counter-arguments in a civilised manner. There is wide consensus that both de-demonetisation and GST have been introduced with haste and with out proper preparation.
