PROTESTING AGAINST demonetisation of higher currency notes, AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will address a rally of traders, farmers and labourers at Azadpur Mandi Thursday.

Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had earlier met traders and farmers at major trading centres in Azadpur, Chandni Chowk and east Delhi to take stock of the implications of the move.

On Wednesday, as Trinamool Congress chief and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and other MPs from TMC, Shiv Sena, and former Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah marched from Parliament to the Rashtrapati Bhavan, seeking rollback of demonetisation, AAP MP Bhagwant Mann too joined in.

Though Kejriwal was invited to join the march, sources close to him told The Indian Express that he did not want to be seen rallying with some leaders who have “corruption charges” against them.

Senior party leaders, however, said that Kejriwal has a good rapport with Mamata and will back her in the protest against demonetisation. “Mamata Banerjee will also be addressing the rally at Azadpur Mandi. All of you do come,” the CM tweeted on Wednesday, soon after he announced that he will address the rally at 11.30 am on Thursday.

“At the rally, Kejriwal will expose the big scam that is demonetisation. While the common man has to face so much hardship in queues, those with black money are going scot-free,” an official AAP statement read.

              The Narendra Modi's government has committed a huge fraud on the people of India. All the BJP money bags were informed much earlier about the demonetization drive of the government, so that they could convert their black money into Gold, foreign currencies as well as transfer their ill - gotten wealth abroad.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Punjab, Uttar pradesh, Uttarkhand are going into elections soon - this only has been the reason for demonetization - so that BJP alone has all the black money with it to fight these elections - Narendra Modi and BJP have exposed themselves as crooks of the highest order !

                Every Chief Minister from each state including MPs should come forward to demand remonetization of the currency. Ppl struggling n striving hard even dying to get a few bucks. They do not have any black money but they are suffering hugely.

                    Good, these two and the others of their ilk are exposing their true colours. Kejri's blabber about fighting corruption is nothing but an attempt to fool people.

                            Kejri ad Mamta should wait one week, the situation is going to be very different and then they will face greater public rath.

                              On the one hand Kejri is trying to distance from corrupt Sharda and Narda scam tainted Mamta and on the other had he is trying to save his terror/ Dawood money and black money collected for Pjb elections. What an honesty?
