Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader and West Bengal state power minister Sobhandeb Chatterjee on Thursday said that due to the poor implementation of demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has lost credibility as a national leader.

“This decision of demonetisation is affecting the poorest people. Till today they have not managed the distribution of currency to the ATMs. Before taking such a decision, he could have managed everything. The Prime Minister has lost credibility as a national leader,” said Chatterjee.

He said their party is not against demonetisation, but the Centre should have considered the after effects of the move.

On Wednesday, the Congress Party on took out a anti-demonetisation protest march and alleged that the nation is suffering courtesy Prime Minister Modi’s declaration of an economic emergency.

Holding placards, scores of Congress workers and supporters gathered here to vent their ire against the government’s move and raised slogans such as “Modi mitra kushal, janata behaal” and “Abki baar janata ki mehnat ki kamai par vaar”.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief Ajay Maken, who led the protest march towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s official 7, Lok Kalyan Marg, told the media that Prime Minister Modi is least bothered about the poor and lower income groups.

Earlier, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee alleged that Prime Minister Modi is following a feudal landlord system, whereby he is snatching the earnings of the poor.

“After coming to power, this government has paid no heed to the grievances of the people. This government has lost its credibility in the eyes of the general public and if credentials are lost then everything is lost. This government has courtesy this move brought in a feudal landlord system whereby the earnings of the poor are being snatched,” said Banerjee during the protest at the Jantar Mantar here.

Mamata staged a sit-in protest at the Jantar Mantar at New Delhi pressing Prime Minister Modi to rollback the policy in view of inconvenience caused to the general public.

For the fifth day of the Winter Session, the Parliament could not transact any substantial business due to uproar over demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes as both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha witnessed repeated adjournments amid allegations and counter-allegation by the members of opposition and treasury benches.

    Now Mamata has earned from Mumtaz bannerjee to a Bandit queen. 21k crores deposited in Jan dhan acct, mostly in WB. Complete sabotage by WB govt.All this drama in Delhi is to divert attention. Soon more skeletons will drop out. Mumtaz will be very busy attending IT and CBI cases.............while MODI will win every election from now on wards. She is leader of Opposition which has CPI?CPM, Cong and Lalu as partners. No need to say anything. She cannot go beyond her residence

            Lie as much as you want TMC. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;You are already exposed as working towards saving your own ill gotten cash and your protest has nothing to do with the poor or sufferinglt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Had Mamta any sense of duty, she would have been hard at work, ensuring that Bengal's junta troubles are minimized. Instead she is hopping around spitting abuses.

                  Mamata and her chumchas are least bothered about proposition that your claim must be predicated by facts or proof.Like an Ostrich she has lt;br/gt;buried her head in the sands of kalighat so that she cannot see the apparitions of Sarada and Narada victims creeping towards her. .Now, the ill gotten wealth is at the verge of disappearing the lady is lashing out at the person,who she think is responsible.

                        Where is the conscience of general m of West Bengal disappeared ? It is unbelievable that spoils of sarada scam didn't reach the coffers of TMC for party expenses ! lt;br/gt;Mamata didi personally may be clean and leading a frugal life. But it is anybody's guess, the amount of money required to arrange large political rallies in the state and outside ! lt;br/gt;Apolitical people of west bengal need to introspect at this stage whether to maintain the status quo of "Chalta hei" atude or to support the recent demonetization drive of the central govt.lt;br/gt;Prior to the left-front govt. in 70's, west bengal was in the national forefront and was known for its revolutionary thought and action. lt;br/gt;A major shakeup in the country like the recent demonetization, albeit its shortcomings, is an opportune time for the people of the state to express their thought and ideas before the country.

                          Selfish opposition parties fighting for their own gain, but how did they forget simple logic if they really care about common people. if GOVT has to roll back then all common man who has exchanged has to stand in queues again to exchange the money. will they then don't face the same issue for another 1 month? the parties are only making noise either to get political gain or to overcome their black money. I support BJP government for this move. this might create some initial pain but will be fruitful in long run.

                                    Leaders are elected by public. The step by PM Modi, is the boldest step to curb quick born wealthy people. It's being opposed by leaders and people who have huge stock of unethically earned Rs 500 and Rs 1000. No common people is starving in current scenario. So worry for yourself Mamtadi, if you have any possession, which I know, you may not have.
