BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha on Friday termed the situation following demonetisation as “chaotic” and demanded that accountability should be fixed as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been let down by his team members. Sinha praised “dashing, dynamic and action-hero” Modi for his “bold, wise and timely” move to curb black money but also blamed the government for its “faulty” execution while speaking to reporters outside parliament.

“Accountability should be fixed for the chaotic situation. The Prime Minister has been let down by his team and those in the government responsible for it should be identified,” he said.

He also questioned the restrictions imposed on withdrawal of money, saying people are being prevented from claiming their own money. “What kind of drama is this?” he wondered.

Taking a dig over the claims that demonetisation is a surgical strike against black money, he said, “The government’s team should have done their homework. Don’t you think it was their responsibility to take care of post surgical strike situation as well.”

Sinha, who has often criticised the government and his party, also sought using the services of Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha and Subramanian Swamy to disseminate the official message as they enjoy clean image.

Shourie and Yashwant Sinha, who were ministers in the Vajpayee government, have been critical of the current dispensation while Swamy has often attacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Apparently referring to Shourie’s comments in which he hasd taken a swipe at the measure, the cine star and former union minister said he had made “good” points.

The poor and the lower and middle classes have been waiting in queue to get money to buy food and medicine, he said. The government must heed to “good points” being made by the opposition as it is a matter of national interest, he said.

    Who has advised Mody to go for demonitization? No groundwork has been done, no contingency plan, confusion in banks, people are suffering a lot /dying. Will the demonitization reduce black money and corruption certainly not. Only severe action including jail term against corrupt people and black money holders only reduce this menace last but not least the political nexus should be stopped

      Modi re-built BJP from two seats to 282 seats, Jaitley and his team bringing down the edifice of BJP.

        Accountability? Lol. When did this Jhumla/Jokers party have any such thing called Accountability? They are a bunch of circus clowns/buffoons neither clear about what they want to do nor they are clear about what is happening on the ground reality. Perhaps it is a systemic problem with the party's composition.
