A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned of more stringent measures against blackmoney towards end of December,  Modi on Sunday said his government will carry forward the fight against all the Benami property holders in the country. While addressing an event in Belgaum, the prime minister said his government doesn’t want to trouble “honest” people. Saying that he took the step to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes only after taking the entire country into confidence, PM Modi said he needs time till December 30 to overcome the initial hardships faced by the people.

Earlier, addressing an event in Goa, PM Modi said “Jiske paas bhi benaami sampatti hai hum us par hamla bolne waale hain (We are going to attack all having black money),” he said.

Talking about his decision to demonetise the currency notes on Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations, the PM said that it is an important step towards making the society corruption-free. “This is important step towards eradicating corruption and black money, but some people are lost in their own world,” he said. Modi was in Goa to lay the foundation stone for Greenfield Airport at Mopa plateau.

                No one will attack the right steps or policies. One will attack only if there is selective actions on illegal activities.

                  PM Modi's decision to demonetise Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes is causing inconveniences to the people It is only for a temporary period. Look its effect Just in four days it is reported the move has eventually halted all terror operations, especially in parts of the Kashmir Valley where nearly Rs 3,000 crore of hawala money in circulation is of ‘no use’.lt;br/gt;stan pumps in Rs 800-1,000 crore annually for separatist groups in Jammu and Kashmir, says a report This is apart from Rs 300-500 crore that is funded to mainstream politicians and local terror groups such as Hizbul Mujahideen.lt;br/gt;Lack of hawala money inflow will majorly hit activities of Maoists and other insurgent groups in the northeastern states. These groups create a corpus of Rs 2,000-3000 crore annually from extortion, and buy weapons and explosives to carry out operations. They will be also be hit hard as the stocked currency has become useless and availability of new high-value notes is not in abundance
