On Sunday, addressing an event in Goa, PM Modi was overcome with emotion when he spoke about how he had to leave behind his family for the sake of the nation. He made an impassioned appeal to the nation, urging everyone to bear with the shortage of currency in circulation for another 50 days.

The prime minister’s move to scrap Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes came under strong criticism from the Opposition, with TMC leading the charge. Opposition parties have been chalking out a joint strategy to take on the Modi government during the Parliament Winter Session. Congress, TMC, Left, JD(U) and RJD are among those planning to take the fight to the government in the House. PM Modi, however, assured BJP MPs that they have the people’s support and advised them against succumbing to pressure from the Opposition.

              Our PM Modi, who made him PM of India? It's you and us. But i voted infavour of Independent Candidate. Now, the simple strategy of the common man sufferings is, You made him PM and he suffers you now. Don't put a blame on him, you should be blamed instead. You agreed to his Promises of bringing back Black Money and the propaas he made during campaign. Then you voted him the PM of India. What a shame!!!

                Another gimmick for fekoo showman. Ordinary indians needs cash to live on. Why a 96 old frail woman who is half way to her grave needs cash so desperately?

                                      If this was a gimmick, she would have given an interview there.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;But this family's behaviour has been normal ever since Modi came to power. They don't use his name, don't expose themselves to the media, and work like common people.lt;br/gt;But if someone recognises her and takes her pic, then it's not really her fault is it?lt;br/gt;You can say it looks like a political gimmick, but their history and behaviour patterns from the past suggest that there's more chances of this being a cooincidence, because they function like a normal family.

                                          Modi forced mum to line up to change HIS black money. Or as a publicity stunt. The dramabaaz is capable to stoop to any low. BTW, how come we never hear of Modi's dad? Who is/was he?

                                            If this is publicity gimmick, then it is of extremely cheap standard. Modi is now using his mother for his PR event. And pity to this poor lady, who is playing a pawn for her fraud son. Doesn't this lady possess Rs 4500 at her home? What this mother-son duo wants to prove? This drama brings the misery of 90 crore common people in very bad taste.
