Hailing the demonetisation scheme, Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to curb black money and terror funding as ‘historic’. Speaking at BJP’s Vijay Sankalp Melava in Aldona, Parrikar said, “With demonetisation, black & corruption money, terror funding, drug money are all hugely affected.”

He credited demonetisation for dealing a blow to drug trafficking and crime in Mumbai. “Because of demonetisation, drug movement in Mumbai has collapsed and crime graph has also come down,” said Parrikar, adding that by December 30 “we will start cashless society in a big way”.
