Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh said his party will make the people aware of the ill-effects of demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax and how it harmed the country's economy.

He said 8 November would be written in black letters in the country's history and Modi had betrayed the people by the note ban.

Sanjay Singh said demonetisation had rendered the youths jobless and farmers were forced to commit suicide due to the Prime Minister's "thoughtless act".

The AAP leader said that Modi had promised to end terrorism, Naxalism and black money through demonetisation, but no such thing had happened.
