BSP chief Mayawati on Monday said it was not the Opposition but Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has effected a ‘bandh’ and parlaysed the country with his demonetisation move on November 8 when he scrapped high-value currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. Speaking on the nationwide strike (Bharat Bandh) called by the Opposition parties against demonetisation, Mayawati told the media: “The BJP alleged that the Opposition has given a Bharat Bandh call, but in reality it is the PM who has done a Bharat Bandh by demonetising high currency notes.”

Mayawati, who has been vociferously opposing the demonetisation move, earlier ridiculed Modi’s app survey and said if the PM truly wanted to see if he has public support, then he must dissolve Parliament and call for elections immediately.

The former UP chief minister said the Opposition wanted the Prime Minister to come to Parliament and give answers for a move that has caused chaos across the country. She said her party was concerned about the poor implementation of the demonetisation as it has subjected poor to hardships.

“We saw Modiji came to the Rajya Sabha before lunch but he skipped the next session because he knew the opposition would demand answers from him,” she said. “Why is he skipping Parliament?”

The BSP chief also slammed Modi for suggesting Opposition parties “favoured” black money and said the remarks warranted an apology.

                  in the name of black money and nationalism it is a monumental mismanagement, organized loot and legalized pering by the RSS, for the RSS and by government of the RSS. They should be held accountable and answerable to the people of the country.
