      Well no one is doubting the intention to ban 500 and 1000 rupee note to fight against corruption but the government should have thought ahead and planned to equipp atms across the country to dispense 100 rupee notes to the public. People waiting in long queues outside atms and banks not having enough cash reflects poor execution of the plan that was supposedly a well thought decision taken by the government 6 months ago.

          Baba R Dev wants all Indians young and Old and men and women to bear hunger caused due to cash not available as our Armed forces fight without food for days. A true nationalist baba forgets that fighting armed forces do not have children, women, old and sick.Sabash baba

            I remember to have seen former Prime Minister and Janata Dal supremo Shri H D Deve gowda had cried many times in the past on different occasion. lt;br/gt;I had also seen Our Great Cricket captain Shri Kapil Dev cried for some reason an TV few years back. lt;br/gt;But yesterday our Brave Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi almost got emotional and cried. in a public Meeting in Goa. lt;br/gt;But why ? It is the turn of common Man to cry as they do not have any money in their purse. It is now sixth day that India is in financial chaos. If the Prime Minister and His Financial Minister have not handled situation in right way. Every Branch of every Bank in Rural India should have been given Rs 50 lakhs and urban Banks two crores in the denomination of Rs 50/100 by 7th November . The details should have been published on 9th November along with the format of application in all leading News Papers. (It is published today 14th Nov ) Exchange of Rs Five thousand to first come first basis. with different Queue for Women and Old people. Bank officials should have been directed to work full time without Holidays and Leave up to 20th November. and One seneior Cabinet Rank Minister to over see the arrangements of Every state. Tokens could have been given to those in queue in proportion to the cash available in every Bank/Branch ( Today 14th Many Banks have remained closed ) Unfortunate is the the Top Men working for Banks have not delievered literally and for everything the Prime Minister has to reply. What other Ministers doing ? If this were to be adequetly planned, then there would have been no occasion for Mr Narendra Modi to cry in Public. lt;br/gt;You are our prime Minister. Please do not do this again. Hang some of those Top Banking Administrators who have proved themselves to be Big ZEROS who have created a situation where in a Prime Minister has to cry
