Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on 8 November, 2016, in a surprise move.

Rai also said the party would organise a national conference on 26 November to celebrate the completion of its five years, as decided in the party's National Council Meeting on Thursday.

"Party members from across the country will assemble for this conference and there will be discussion on works undertaken by the party till now.

"We will talk on issues related to farmers who have been deceived by the Centre. Apart from this, there will be dialogue on the demonetisation and GST (Goods and Services Tax)," he said.

"These two decisions by the BJP government at the Centre have ruined the country's economy."
