Rahul said that the decision has thrown farmers, small shopkeepers and housewives into “utter chaos”, adding that, “real culprits sit tight on their black money stashed abroad or in bullion and real estate”. The Congress V-P further asked the PM: “How is replacing Rs 1000 notes with Rs 2000 notes going to make black money hoarding a lot harder.”

In a nationnwide address, the prime minister Tuesday announced that in a step to curb black money, the government will demonitise currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 from midnight November 8 to weed out fake currency from circulation. “Corruption, fake currency and terrorism are festering wounds, holding back the economy,” said Modi.

            The entire cash transaction trade of (1) film industry, (2) real estate and (3) the mighty political parties is going to be washed clean. If V P Congi can not understand then we should be worried??? By the way there are w markets all over India like the Sadar bazar and Chawri in Delhi Where majority of transactions are in number 2.

                    Only those who have stashed black money for over 60 years are worried and all others are happy. That is only trouble for Rahul.

                          many thing are yet to understand for you, my freind. I believe, black money of business and political elite stay out of banks, in a sack. Because its huge amount they keep them in big notes like 500 and 1000. Now, they cant change, not worthy very soon. If they put those money in bank account it will be coming under CBI scanner. so that black money makes useless. 2000 are new ones. it will disappear too in some years. It is just to curb unaccounted money. I guess

                                  Most affected ones are the freebiewalla as most of them in most of the time get hand outs from black stock or money paid by their Pak ISI handlers! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Screaming pain will be heard for next few days from these quarters!
