Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday termed Prime minister Narendra Modi “confused and incompetent”, who, it said, “changes his own decision everyday”, after the Centre tightened rules for depositing scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in bank accounts. The party also accused the BJP-led NDA government of resorting to “economic terrorism” which has allegedly claimed lives of over 100 people. Coming out with 59 circulars relating to regulations pertaining to notes-ban in less than 50 days “proves that the Prime Minister does not know what he is doing, and changes his own decision everyday,” AAP leader Ashutosh said.

Tightening rules for depositing demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, the government had yesterday said individuals can deposit over Rs 5,000 in old currency bills only once until December 30 and that too after explaining why it has not been done so far. Initially, after banning old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on November 8, the government had allowed people to deposit scrapped currency notes in bank accounts till December 30 and there was no limit to the amount that can be deposited.

“The finance minister (Arun Jaitley) and the Prime Minister have been consistently urging people not to rush to deposit old notes as the deadline is December 30. Now there are new curbs. So were the Prime Minister and the finance minister lying then or are they misleading the people now,” Ashutosh asked. AAP’s Delhi unit convener Dilip Pandey alleged the Union government is busy undertaking public relations exercise, but does not answer questions related to demonetisation nor is it giving any correct picture of the on-going “crisis”.

“This is nothing, but economic terrorism, which has allegedly taken lives of over 100 people. Will the government ever accept responsibility for the loss of lives,” he asked.

      Kejri sir is right. This government led by a bunch of jokers (Feku, Jhootley, Shah etc.) has no idea what it’s doing. It can only take diktats from Ambani, Adani and Mallya etc.

                  Perhaps AAP is right. Rules laid out for demonetization is not consistent. Every day it is changing. While announcing the scheme, PM said, you have time up to 31.12.2016 to deposit old currency with bank. Now they made a u turn. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;One interesting announcement, there will be no limit for withdrawal from bank, if the deposits are made in new currency. When no currency is in the system, who will make a deposit in currency with bank. Just a Jhumlalt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;For marriages 2.5 lakhs can be with drawn, provided affidavits from the cook, grocery shop, flower vendor, band party etc. confirming that, they will take only cash, have to be submitted with bank. How many people got this 2.5 lakhs for marriages. Many marriages were postponed or conducted with a few thousands. Are the people were applying for a loan from bank. They were asking for their own money. Another Jhumla. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Only an incompetent can make out such rules, which are practically impossible to enforce.

                          It's political. Remember it was meant to target the opposition in the poll bound UP and Punjab while keeping BJP above the ground.

                            AAP is composed of a bunch of street urchins who do not know any civilized manners. They speak anything they like since they have no responsibility for anything, They do not do good things but always speak wrong against PM Modi, which is a complete nonsense. Let us ignore these fools..

                              Media is in bad situation now. Honest leaders do not talk to media and public is not ready to listen about dishonest.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;That is why this trend to publish statements by dishonest against honest.

                                    If we follow the speeches/actions of the leaders in the past/present you are the most confused/incompetent among the leaders. After a little success due to the piggy back ride and ditching many in the process. You have no aim/target to reach except blame others for your utter failure to do the job in spite of so much majority. Wake up and put on your thinking cap if you have one. Jaihind
