Blaming Narendra Modi for the deaths of over 70 persons linked to demonetisation, Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam said on Tuesday that the Prime Minister “should be booked for murder”. He said millions of people were on the streets today and they had no money to buy food, medicines or other articles of daily necessities after the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. “These people have been standing in long queues for so many days, waiting to deposit and withdraw their own money which is now stuck in the banks. So far, more than 70 persons have died,” Nirupam said.

“One and only person is responsible for all these deaths — Prime Minister Narendra Modi. I demand he should be held responsible and booked under Section 302 (of IPC) for murder,” he said. Nirupam was interacting with the media at a widely attended ‘Note Pe Charcha’ launched by the party on Tuesday to gauge the public opinion on post-demonetisation in Mumbai. Hundreds of people, including some standing in the bank queues, highlighted their difficulties and suffering without money.

Some complained how they had the new Rs 2,000 notes but could not change them.

Nirupam said that as of now, around Rs 5 lakh crore had been deposited in banks but people had been able to withdraw barely 25 per cent of that amount, creating a panic situation.

“The government should have made adequate preparations before the sudden demonetisation. Now that millions suffer, the RBI should immediately supply more currency for the public. The people have been put to great hardships due to sudden demonetisation,” he said.

Besides, trade and commerce were on the verge of collapse as people have no money to buy basic necessities. Hotels, restaurants, shops and malls, cinemas or multiplexes and all other sectors of the economy have reported huge drops of more than 70-80 per cent in business, he said.

        Why media gives importance to such mad persons. For The instigators of 1984 Sikhs, Forget booking them for inciting voilance, they have been given position of importance in the party. Remember r k Anand he was caught on camera arranging witnesses to speak in favor of the accused Congi leaders and he was debarred from the Bar.

                    Indian Express has no news except such ic statements from person who has no respect in his own party? What happened to the news of Supreme Court rejecting AK's plea for defamation case by Jatley?

                              He is one of the most irresponsible and unreliable politician in MR. He wanted proof even for surgical strike by Indian Army which stan admitted indirectly. India is becoming a sheltering place for worst demogauges hitting Indian polity where it hurts MOST. His party has the unique distinction of having many like him. The great Rahul hi with no work is speaking every where except Loksabha but he wants PM to come and listen to blah blah of likes of him in opposition. sad days for Indian democracy!!
