Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Sunday welcomed Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s support for demonetisation, a move undertaken by the Centre to root out the menace of black money. “I welcome Bihar CM Nitish Kumar’s support for PM Narendra Modi’s fight against black money,” Shah said while addressing a gathering at OBC morcha rally in Karnataka.

Earlier on Sunday, Kumar had declared that he had taken a principled stand on demonetisation, insisting that the move will help fight black money. This comes against the backdrop of reports alleging that Shah personally met Kumar at his residence. The reports were promptly rubbished by Kumar, saying those with “perverted mindset” were spreading such “canards”. The JD(U) leader, however, has urged the government to check the hardships being faced by the masses across the country due to the move.

The JD(U) had also pulled out the November 28 all-India protest called by the opposition parties to protest the demonetisation move, which has left many in the lurch and utter state of confusion.

With the opposition turning on the heat on the Modi-led government over its decision to demonetise higher currency notes, Shah hit back at their detractors saying, “Saara vipaksh Congress, BSP, SP, Mamata, Kejriwal, Modi ji se puchte the kale dhan pe aapne kya kiya? Ab puch rahe hain ye kyu kiya (the entire opposition used to ask Modi ji what steps have you taken to get rid of black money, now they are asking why did you take the step of demonetisation?).”

    Don't trust Nitish. He is like a chameleon and can change his colour any time. He may be expecting Modi to provide financial istance to Bihar. He can't praise Modi without something in return.
