Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that the Central government’s decision not to roll back the demonetisation move showed that it has lost its connect with the people. “I am very sad that FM (Finance Minister) has plainly refused to even review and consider rollback. The (Narendra) Modi government has lost connect with people and has become very insensitive,” Kejriwal said in a tweet.

Kejriwal and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee on Thursday warned of a public revolt if demonetisation move was not rolled back in three days. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday clarified there was “no question of rolling back” the demonetisation move and accused Kejriwal and Banerjee of “spreading panic”.

The Central government on November 8 has demonetised 500 and 1,000 rupee notes in a bid to curb black money and counterfeit currency.

        It is nothing but childish act by AK and it seems he lost his connect with the people and even Mr.Anna Hazare supported the move of PM Modi and hailed the Action taken AGAINST the Black Money holders. The way the people of India stand up in the queues to get back the hard earned money says it all and people like you can't fool the people at all the times is proved by your own selfish act and protest against it because you lost heavily due to the Suit cases you and your party are holding !!!

              सोचता हूँ आआपा को राजधानी में बहुमत से जिताने वाले नागरिक आज अरविन्द केजरीवाल के राष्ट्रद्रोही वक्तव्यों को लेकर क्या कहते होंगे| कुछ नहीं| कहें भी क्या, राष्ट्रवादी प्रधान मंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी द्वारा २०१४ में स्वतंत्रता दिवस पर लाल किले की प्राचीर से भारत पुनर्निर्माण की रूपरेखा व्यक्त करते उन्होंने करोड़ों लोगों के दिल में आत्मविश्वास जगा दिया परंतु उनकी अवहेलना करते इन दिल्ली वालों ने स्वयं यह बला खड़ी की थी! कैसी विडंबना है कि जिन बहुसंख्यक गरीब नागरिकों के उत्थान का बीड़ा उठाया है उनमें भटके हुए स्वार्थी युवा आज भी कांग्रेस स्वरूप आआपा की पार्टी-बाजी में मोदी जी के सशक्त व समृद्ध भारत हेतु सपनों पर पानी फेर रहे हैं| उन्हें धिक्कार है|

                Kejriwal is getting silier by the day. If he goes on like this, he will become irrelevant in people's view, even if media keep propping him up.
