Slamming the Centre on demonetisation once again, West Bengal chief minister, Mamata Banerjee announced on Monday that she would be on the roads of Delhi on Tuesday to protest against the note ban. “I am going to Delhi tomorrow. I will be on the road again. We are ready to join any political programme,” she said.

She went on to criticise the government for the lack of planning in the implementation of demnetisation. “Centre has ‘rolled back’ about 15 decisions since announcement on 8 Nov. This means they are confused,” said the All India Trinamool Congress chairperson.

Commenting upon the impact of demonetisation on the ordinary people of India, she said that ” The lower middle class, traders, daily wagers, housewives are the worst sufferers.”

Earlier, Banerjee along with BJP ally, Shiv Sena led a march from the Parliament house to the Rashtrapati Bhawan protesting against the currency ban. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on Sunday responded to her criticism by saying “those who looted poor with chit fund scam are today questioning Centre.”
