On a different note, he attacked Naveen Patnaik-led BJD government in Odisha. “Naveen (Patnaik) ji aapne 17 years mei kya kiya? Iska hisaab poochne mai aaya hun (Naveen Patnaik ji, what have you done in the past 17 years? I have come to seek answers here).

He slammed the Odisha government for not providing adequate health facilities to the poor. “Odisha ki sarkar agar gareebon ko health facilities tak uplabdh nahi kara sakti toh aisi sarkar ko satta mei rehne ka adhikar nahi hai (If the Odisha government can’t provide adequate health facilities to the poor, then it has not reason to stay in power).

        Demonetisation to cost Rs 1.28 lakh crore till Dec 30: CMIElt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Though welcomed by many across the country, the government's decision to demonetise higher currencies has left many in the lurch and utter state of confusion.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The transaction cost of the demonetisation exercise during the 50-day window till December 30 would be a staggering Rs 1.28 trillion (Rs 1.28 lakh crore), according to a study by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy.lt;br/gt;According to Mahesh Vyas, the managing director and chief economist of CMIE, the exercise can only be considered worth if the government is able to unearth unaccounted cash worth at least the transaction cost. “If the government succeeds in unearthing even Rs.4 trillion unaccounted cash, then the transaction cost of this exercise would be about 26 per cent. It would be over 43 per cent if the unearthed cash is Rs.3 trillion,” Vyas said in his research note.lt;br/gt;Households, according to Vyas, will bear 12 per cent of the entire cost of demonetisation, largely in loss of wages, during the 50-day period while banks will suffer “overheads and operational costs in terms of recalibrating ATMs”. As per his estimates, banks would bear a cost of Rs 351 billion during this stited periodlt;br/gt;Enterprise sector stands to suffer the most out of this exercise, which is aimed at rooting out the menace of black money, as it is projected to lose Rs 615 billion or 48 per cent of the total transaction cost during this period.lt;br/gt;The study also paints a grim picture for the government and the Reserve Bank of India. “The government and RBI are estimated to bear a cost of Rs.168 billion. This is largely because of printing of new currency and transportation of new currency to bank branches, ATMs and post offices,” he said.lt;br/gt;Though welcomed by many across the country, the government’s decision to demonetise higher currencies has left many in the lurch and utter state of confusion. The study also warned the impact of the rudimentary step could impact the economy over a longer period.lt;br/gt;“However, the impact of low liquidity, broken supply chains and loss of confidence in consumers is likely to impact the economy over a longer period. Therefore, the transaction cost of this exercise is more than the Rs.1.28 trillion estimated here,” he concluded

              What you have done 17 years in Gujarat? The national percentage of underweight children below the age of five has fallen from 42.5 a decade ago to about 29. In Gujarat, the figure has dropped from 44.6 to 33.5 per cent, which is worse than the national average.

                Guys, don't take into account these petty problems and inconveniences, which we are facing at this moment. Think about the sacrifices our dear freedom fighters had given for our today. Look at the big picture, what we and our nation will be achieving, in the future. I am sure Modiji is a person with ample capability, a leader blessed by the almighty to lead India to a heights which is beyond the imaginations of most people. Don't join hands with these rogue leaders, who had been rulling us for so many years, filling their pockets. My humble request is to give Modiji a chance and time for proving his ideas. Have a little patience. Heart felt Regards to all citizens of of this great nation INDIA, "Jai Hind"
