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.

                        Akhilesh, Nitish, Naveen and others who were well aware of Modi move before November 8 are supporting it because they lose nothing, only people of this country are suffering. Even Akhilesh was allowed to continue using Rs.1000 and Rs. 500 old notes even after November 8, freely in land deals and other UP government expenses.

                          Nitish Kumar has proved his statesmanship. Politics different and nationalism different. He too understand that there are sufferings to the poor people but modestly asking govt to address those problems. This is what a gentleman politics. Sharad Yadav cease to be out of line for JDU. Same way, Naveen Patnaik too has proved that politics and national interest should not be mixed. Both these chief ministers are educated and that is the difference.Shame on the other opposition including the bedridden Congress.

                              Nitish is right in supporting the note ban. He must slowly join bjp and leave corrupt lalu and congress

                                      CHOR CHOR MAUSERE BHAI. IT IS IRONY THAT NITISH KUMAR SUPPORT DEMONETISATION. WHILE HIS PARTY PRESIDENT SHARAD YADAV JOIN OPPOSITION IN PARLIAMENT. THERE ARE TWO THINGS , FIRST, HE HAD CONVERTED HIS BLACK MONEY WITH THE SUPPORT OF BJP. SECONDLY, HE GOT HUGE COMMISSION FROM BJP IN THE DEAL OF HUGE CHUNK OF PROPERTIES WHICH BJP BOUGHT IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF BIHAR BEFORE THE DAYS OF ANNOUNCEMENT OF DEMONETAISATION BY MODI AND PAID IN RS, 1000 AND RS.500 NOTES, AS THE FIRST THING IS CONCERNED FM JAITLY STATEMENT THAT NOTES WERE PRINTED BY RBI MUCH IN ADVANCE. SO, WHERE THOSE NOTES GONE. IT IS USED BY BJP AND MODI FRIENDS TO CONVERT NEW NOTES FROM OLD NOTES. AS SECOND POINT IS CONCERNED NOW IT IS IN NEWS ABOUT THE HUGE CHUNK OF LAND BOUGHT BY BJP. THAT IS WHY NITISH KUMAR SUPPORTING DEMONETISATION WITH OUT ANY REASON.SHAME
