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.
As I had said earlier, demonetisation is the biggest disaster.
It has completely ruined the country’s economy 1/3

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.
