Indian captain Virat Kohli is absolutely floored by Narendra Modi’s demonetisation drive, calling it the”greatest move in history of Indian politics”.

“For me, it is the greatest move I have seen in the history of Indian politics by far, hands down. I have been so impressed by it. It’s unbelievable what’s happening,” said Kohli on the eve of the second Test in Visakhapatnam.

He also shared an incident how he forgot that old notes were no longer in use. “I was actually going to pay my hotel bills in Rajkot and I was taking out the old money and I forgot that it isn’t of any use anymore.”

He then talked about how he is going to use the old notes. ” I could have actually signed on it and given it to people, they are that useless now,” Kohli laughed.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced on November 8 that notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 will no longer be considered legal beginning November 9.
