Amid criticism from certain quarters on demonetisation, the central government’s move on Sunday found supporters in a chaat-shop owner and eunuchs who campaigned to raise awareness about the benefits of a cashless society. After taking part in Christmas celebration event with inmates of Cheshire home at Sundernagar, 49-year-old Pappu Sardar accompanied by a group of eunuchs distributed pamphlets in the busy Sakchi market highlighting the advantages of the decision.

Supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation decision and push for cashless society, Sardar, who is famous in the region as a die-hard fan of Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit, claimed the move would secure the future of upcoming generations. He said one should not expect PM Modi alone to eradicate corruption. “But it is the responsibility of every individual to discharge their responsibility to achieve the goal (of rooting out corruption),” he told reporters.
“The intention of the government is good and the people from across the society are supporting it whole-heartedly,” he said when asked about the impact on small traders and farmers. Sardar and the eunuchs also campaigned in support of demonetisation near Tatanagar station. Earlier at Chesire Home, Sardar distributed sweets among the inmates during the Christmas gathering that was organised by Tata Motors.
