West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sharply criticised the Prime Minister’s 26th Mann Ki Baat aired on Sunday. CM Mamata Banerjee tweeted: “Maan Ki Baat has now become Modi Ki Baat. Misusing government machinery. Instead of finding solutions to the suffering and pain of millions of people he is doing personal vendetta, personal publicity and business. (sic)”

Mamata also warned that the women of the country would give him a befitting reply. “They are the mother of India. They are the mother of all, Mr Today’s PM”.

The chief minister went on to tweet, “Modiji, you have finished India’s economy and growth…We don’t trust you or your mismatched wrong technology which you are advertising for…We want technology and progress. But no section of society is to be left out and tortured while doing this.”

“The PM is asking for 50 days. People who have a hand to mouth situation don’t have five days. Shows he is completely disconnected from the reality,” said Derek O’ Brien, TMC Rajya Sabha MP and party spokesperson.

CPM state secretary Surjyakanta Mishra said this attempt of the Centre to make the nation cashless would fail. “It has not been possible in a nation like America, and it will not be possible in India as well where all the cashless transactions through debit and credit cards, online and through smartphone applications add up to 8 per cent of the total transactions whereas 92 per cent takes place in cash. He clearly intends not to let people withdraw their money even if those are transferred into their bank accounts,” he said.

State Congress president Adhir Chowdhury said a cashless society was a “utopian idea” of the Prime Minister. “Of course we need to go cashless but at the moment we don’t have the culture and institutions required. Around 70 per cent of our population live in villages, and about 45 per cent have no bank accounts,” Chowdhury said.

          Which is more important ? Black money or human life . Govt is running business instead of welfare of people. By increasing train fare govt finished people to people contact between states. Now with under garb of black money created rich and poor. With cows cast system.

            Yes Modi stopped the parallel economy of Black and Pak printed fake money. Small problems for small persons no doubt. 2-5 crore Muslims particularly deal with cash, because they are fake and illegal citizens of India. Naturally Congress, CPM, TMC will loose max money. India will go cashless within 6 months. get ready for more fun. They will also loose vote bank politics. Let them cry. India will move ahead with bullet speed now

                  The news of the withdrawal of notes caught most people by surprise, leading many to hail the government's success in keeping it a closely guarded secret, it is now emerging the information—or at least a rumour of what was to come—had already reached several ears. Firstly, in April this year, SBI had said that people were withdrawing cash in large amounts in smaller denominations due to rumours of demonetization of ₹1000 and ₹500 notes. Secondly, in the past few weeks, local dailies in Gujarat and elsewhere had also reported that such a move might be in the offing. Thirdly, the BJP's West Bengal unit deposited an unusually large cash amount of Rs 1 crore just before the move's announcement. All these factors indicate that information of the action may well have leaked.

                    He asked for 100 days and completed 1000 days but his promises not fulfilled. Now he is trying to postpone the swiss bank black money to 2018 and 2019. Dont trust blindly go and reach reliable news. Our community policies are very good, Modi himself impressed while visiting UAE, now modi and you decline to shariat law Banks. Shed blind faiths of 100 years back like satisahagaman, which already banned by british rulers. This is not fake news go and study history of India.

                      Please tell how many BJP MLAs or MPs dismissed from the party membership due to scams in the Modi's rule? If not then is there no scams undertaken through out Indian states while bjp as a ruling party? You telling modi is clean and clear. If so then why he is not answering in Parliament and barking outside the parliament. B

                                        Modi's knee jerk decision of demonenitization to cover his inefficacies over the last 2 years is bound to backfire. BJP and Modi have done severe damage already. I doubt even the terrorists could ever have accomplished a feat of making so much of the country's potion undergo 50 days of travails. If corruption and black money was such a serious issue, how did India develop so much in just less than 70 years and with huge growth spurts in just last 30 years and that too being the biggest democracy in the world after about 500 years of pering? Clearly, BJP lacks intellectuals and India is better off with this party getting a good kick in their butt before New year.

                                          One thing is sure in last 20 days 90% of Indians have turned to be economic experts. Thinking hay wired in all directions and drawing conclusions. Things are now getting normal and this is hurting Mamta most as she is not getting enough support. Now she is playing woman card. Woman of this country will uproot her one day. You cant be inactive in situations like Malda and make a huge and cry about PM. People of this country are not fools if Modi is right he will be voted he is wrong he wont be. Please stop drawing conclusions based on pseudo experts of economy. For Muslims to hate Modi is like birth right so no comments.

                                            Please share evidence and then speak. Almost every politician has lost money in this exercise. For a Muslim it is like birth right to oppose Modi.Better use ur energy on enlightening ur community about violence they spread across the globe and let PM do what he is igned to do. We will judge him well after 5 years tenure he succeeds we will vote if he does not we will vote him out.
