Prime Minister Narendra Modi is shifting the debate from black economy to cashless economy following demonetisation, Delhi’s ruling AAP said on Monday. At a “public dialogue” on the issue at Connaught Place, Aam Aadmi Party leader Dilip Pandey said the demonetisation move had turned from a “Tughlaki farman” to a “Talibani farman”.

“More than seven dozen people have died due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to spike 500 and 1,000 rupee notes,” he said. In the wake of an unprecedented cash chaos across the country, Modi was now trying to shift the debate from black economy to cashless economy, the AAP leader said.

“But when people have no cash in their pockets, the economy will naturally turn into a cashless economy. Is that what our Prime Minister is trying to achieve?” Pandey asked at a gathering of hundreds wearing ‘aam aadmi’ caps. The crowd included AAP MLAs.

“Now they have reduced interest rates on fixed deposits. This shows that you (Modi) have become insensitive to public suffering.” Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said that in just 20 days since the November 8 demonetisation, over eight lakh crore rupees had been deposited in the banks.

If so much money has already reached the banks in just 20 days, where has the black money gone, he asked. Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra said even a child was aware that black money was now being converted into white.

He alleged that virtually no trade was going on since demonetisation.

    Both are same. No one is talking about prime reasons i.e. illiteracy and Potion control measure. Without potion control measure nothing can be achieved. It will eat away all;br/gt;If number of children in the family exceeds 2, then all the subsidies provided to them sould automatically be removed and the person will no longer be liable to any subsidies (Divide people on the basis, of what wrong doings they do, not on the basis of what they earn, not in which religious group they are born in).lt;br/gt;Its astonishing no one is hurting to root cause.

        Now India is going through a difficult situation. People are blindly believing our prime minister. Government can give an option on cash or e payment.But giving compelsion is not at all worthy.For economic development cah payment is the only channel All the developed nations achieved the growth through cash payment.Even today they handle cash. so Prime Minister Modi should take necessary arrangement to make available cash .
