Samajwadi Party’s Maharashtra unit president Abu Azmi on Sunday demanded that the Centre rolled back the demonetisation, claiming that otherwise, it would witness a “revolution of change” which will oust the BJP from power in many states.
“The whole country has been forced to come to the streets due to this decision and the agony of the people is only increasing with each passing day. If the government does not take back its decision, it will soon witness a revolution of change, which will oust the BJP from power in the various upcoming Assembly polls,” he said.

He was accompanied by SP leaders Rais Shaikh, Shahnawaz Khan and Ruksana Siddique among others.
“The poor are the worst affected. Even if they seem patient from outside, they are shattered within. People who had welcomed this decision are opposing it. This is only the start to their opposition,” Azmi said.
