    Already few deaths of people have been reported in different parts of the country because of reason of discontinuing the legal currency as people are tense and worried , because of long queues and non availabily of sufficient currency for exchange with banks. Then the treatment meted out to people by bank staff is not courteous because of pressure of work on them .The people are worried even though they have not got small amounts ,but itbis all they have ..Who is going to take respinsibility of same.
