The opposition parties led by Congress are organising ‘Jan Akrosh Divas’ on Monday to protest against the “poor” implementation of BJP-led central government’s demonetisation policy. The large-scale protests were first called by Congress party and other parties joined the call. However, TMC chief Mamata Banerjee – who has been spearheading the protests against demonetisation outside Parliament – has announced that her party will not join the protests. She said that it will add to the inconvenience of people who are already suffering because of demonetisation.

Apart from that, Janata Dal (United) is also not supporting the protests. Bihar Chief Minister and party president Nitish Kumar has said that he supports the demonetisation drive and only wants government to put an end to the inconvenience caused to people. Other parties including INLD in Haryana, Telangana Rashtra Samithihas and Karnataka Congress have also backed out of the protests. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the demonetisation policy on November 8.
