He pointed out that Bihar chief minister and party president Nitish Kumar had offered his support to demonetisation soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced it in a televised address to the nation last year.

Kumar was then part of an Opposition alliance and had broken ranks with the Congress and other parties to support the move.

"We have always stood against black money. We welcome the BJP's announcement and will support and join its programmes," he said.
