Demonetisation: Govt's argument against black money turns into sales pitch for cashless society

The chaotic post–demonetisation period has been characterised by two significant realities. One, the central government’s motivation to weed out black money, seems to have dovetailed with a now thunderous sales — pitch for a cashless society. Two, in labelling all critics of demonetisation, particularly the political opposition as “corrupt” or “friends–of–the corrupt,” the government is reaffirming its intolerance of criticism as such. #United States #Black money #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #ConnectTheDots #Election Commission #S Y Quraishi #Trinamool Congress #Demonetisation #Kenneth Rogoff #Mann Ki Baat #Tim Worstall

Are these issues real, particularly in the current context? #Black money #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #ConnectTheDots #Election Commission #parliament #Election #Rs 1000 #Rs 500 #Indrajit Gupta Committee #State Assemby

Demonetisation: Centre's refusal to empower EC to clamp down on notebank politics raises eyebrows

In lieu of the demonetisation wave, the Centre’s reluctance to empower the Election Commission to clamp down on black money in politics does raise eyebrows. #Corruption #Tamil Nadu #Elections #Black money #ConnectTheDots #Election Commission #Law Ministry #Demonetisation #Rs 1000 #Rs 500
