Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s younger brother Prahlad Modi on Friday backed the Centre’s move of scrapping Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, saying everyone is happy with demonetisation. His remark came during a visit to the Bhagyalakshmi temple abutting the historic Charminar in Hyderabad, where he had come to offer prayers.

“After seeing the faces of the Hyderabadi people… it does not seem that they are facing any problem of currency notes due to demonetisation. Everyone is happy,” he told reporters when asked about demonetisation.

Prahlad, who visited some historic tourist spots in the city, said, “I have come here for ‘darshan’ of Bhagyalakshmi ‘mata’ and to seek blessing of the goddess. I prayed for well being of everyone in the country.”

    This is Indian culture.. we have to p derogatory remarks to elderly person because he's the brother of someone whom we don't support..why do I have to sacrifice... just remove the black money from the country. It's reflects the poor upbringing of this generation I-ME-MYSELF. My dear if others don't exist you would not for sure.

      This is like rubbing salt on the wounds of millions of poor who are without work or food. What a shame!

          Now the family must back up PM because the situation is so bad. "Everyone" could not possibly include the families of the ones who died or the farmers who have no funds for supplies or even the ones going without food because of lack of circulating funds. This "everyone" business is a farce and an outright lie.

                    Mr. P Modi. Please tell me how will i pay my Dhobi at the end of this month??? Ir my maid who comes or my bread walla or my egg walla. My concern is that if I pay frmo Paytm, i am increasing business of a third party of which i have no desire to increase. Why should i be forced to pay through a particular mechanism? when all my earnings are in pure white money. Why should i curb my freedom on how i would like to conduct my daily transaction. Choice is considered as a fundamental right. My fundamental rights are being violated.

                        When you are desperate enough to send your mother who can't walk to a bank to stand in line and get some cash exchanged, you know everyone is Happy.... ;)

                              It is sad that PM's mother and brother have appeared endorsing demonetization both in electronic and print media. But this country which worships women media has not bothered to contact PM's wife JASHODABEN and know her opinion on this issue.

                                  you know if she wouldn't have gone and someone else would have gone in her place, then your remark would have been the opposite, this is just criticizing for no reason .. baseless.
