Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday addressed the nation through his popular radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’. He spoke on demonetisation and the efforts undertaken by his government to ease the inconvenience caused due to the scrapping of high denomination currency notes. This was his first ‘Mann ki Baat’ after his November 8 announcement, declaring Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes as illegal. The issue derailed Parliamentary proceedings, with a majority of the Opposition vociferously attacking the Centre over the move and PM Modi for ‘failing’ to take part in the House debate. On Monday, Opposition parties called for a countrywide protest against demonetisation.

In the 25th edition of the programme, PM Modi praised the security forces for their sacrifices and underlined that it wouldn’t have been possible to celebrate Diwali without them securing our borders. “Our jawans have been sacrificing their lives in the last last few months. We should celebrate this Diwali in their name,” he said.

The prime minister also touched on issues like gender discrimination and open defecation in the country. Much of his address, however, was dedicated to jawans. With an increase in ceasefire violations across border, he urged everyone to boost the morale of the security forces.

                Modi must accept taht the road ahead after his decision is Rough.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Honest follow up action such as Tax reforms are a must.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Agriculture needs urgent attention and Rural economy has to be salvaged.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Unorganised sector will take the brunt of impending recession.Job losses are going to be a reality.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;People must start worrying about the Money in Banks for sure.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;PM must ure that people will not have any restriction in access to their Money in Banks.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Mere semantics like bogey of Fake notes and corruption is no answer,Now that PM has done what he wanted.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;PM went public and claimed he has done surgical strike,if thats the case.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Why has Ravi Prasad said that it was RBI Decision to do away with old 500 and 1000 buck notes.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Even if the Public now under a Spell ,may not agree.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Job losses and economic instability if Not chaos is coming

                      Modi cat ear and hawk eye is targeting the black money in tune of Rs 11 crore stored in the cushion, toilet, wall and ceiling of corrupt officials and politicians. Mamata and its TMC cadres spreading propaa how to convert black money through private bank by giving 25 percent is a lie.

                        The present exercise of govt clearly exposes the size of parallel economy in India. Out of around Rs 17 lakh crore, only around Rs 6 lakh crore are coming into bank. It shows that 65 percent of the total currency in circulation is in black income.

                            When I ask about govt action in both Hindu and Muslim in am, Muslim always says no to demonetization because they support counterfeiting of currencies. Even Rs 2000 currency nots fake currency notes were seized from a Muslim lady at Imphal.

                                      Modiji terrorized the terrorists and con artists alike, the reason all opposition are crying foul, and some Media is still singing their shariah slogans in the name of Am Admi. .

                                            The PM is completely out of sync with the ground realities. Perhaps he is being fed with wrong statistics and facts by his courtiers.
