Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday took a swipe at the opposition parties over their ‘Aakrosh Divas’ protest, saying their anger was not over demonetisation, but over Centre’s “blockade” of black money.

“Aakrosh (anger) is not against ‘Notebandi’ but against Nakebandi (blockade) of black money,” the Minister of State for Minority Affairs (Independent Charge) and Parliamentary Affairs tweeted.

Opposition parties including the Congress and Left are observing Aakrosh Divas (Day of Angst) over government’s move to demonetise Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes.
