The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay proceedings in cases filed in various courts across the country against the Centre’s move to scrap old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.  It, however, agreed to transfer all pending cases on demonetisation to a single court. Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi informed the bench hearing the Centre’s plea that the situation in the country is improving. “Expecting situation to get better in coming days. Sufficient measures have been taken to benefit farmers,” he said. Saying that there was no shortage of new currency notes, Rohatgi asked people to not panic as there have been a few problems in its transportation. The cash deposited in banks amounted to Rs 6 lakh crore and  they are expected to collect Rs 15 lakh crore in total, he added. Earlier, Rohatgi requested a blanket order to stay proceedings in PILs filed in various courts.

The Modi government’s move to declare old high currency tender illegal caused considerable amount of hardship to the common man as queues outside banks and ATMs spilled onto the roads. Within days of announcing the move, RBI relaxed withdrawal norms for those celebrating weddings and farmers. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been constantly reviewing the policy changes.

He even sought the public’s opinion on the move through an app survey. Speaking at an event in Delhi on Tuesday, Modi expressed shock over a few public figures openly supporting black money. The issue has, however, united the Opposition, both inside and outside the parliament. House proceedings were repeatedly disrupted, with Opposition seeking PM Modi’s participation in the discussion over demonetisation.

          There are four major categories of enemies to the nation: 1. The Con Party that looted the country to the core through mega scams like 2G, Coalgate, CWG, National Herald, Agusta, etc., 2. Corrupt Judiciary 3. Terrorists inside and outside the country 4. Corrupt Paid mainstream media terrorists who work for the above three categories.

              Judiciary should focus on better issues than meddling with good initiatives by the government and reprimand those voices supporting corruption

                Shame on our opposition. The more these Pappus,Khujlis,Bibi Bombtaas speak on demonetization,the more they get exposed. Khujli's pokitical career is finished. Pappu and doulat ki beti corrupt Mayawati have lost slme thousands of crores. With chitfund money,commission from Malda fake currency racket gone, Bombtaa Bano has become a political beggar. The frustration of these corrupt leaders is visible.
