Demonetisation: Arvind Kejriwal tweets 'change the PM not notes'

Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation policy on 8 November, Arvind Kejriwal has fought and opposed the move tooth and nail. Taking to Twitter, one of the Delhi CM's preferred methods of communication, he tweeted, "Not the note, change the PM".

The Delhi Chief Minister has thrashed the demonetisation move and accused that the demonetisation policy was introduced by Modi for the betterment of his few industrialist friends only and not the 'aam aadmi'.

On 15 November, Kejriwal took to Facebook and went live with a video criticising the demonetisation move by the Modi government. The video gathered five million views.

The past few days also saw Arwind Kejriwal joining hands with Mamata Banerjee to oppose the demonetisation policy. Mamata has also lambasted the Prime Minister for his move by citing the example of long queues for exchanging and withdrawing money from the banks and ATMs.

Continuing his attack, Kejriwal on Monday tweeted that Paytm, an e-commerce website headquarted in Noida, has benefitted immensely from demonetisation and pointed out that Modi had even done a commercial for Paytm. He urged the prime minister to reveal what association he has with Paytm. A minute later, he tweeted that ''Note Nahi, PM badlo" (Change PM not note).
