Demonetisation: Arvind Kejriwal appeals to PM Modi to roll back decision

Warning of an impending anarchy, Delhi Chief Minsiter Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw his decision to ban the 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.

Saying the 8 November demonetisation had caused immense hardships to people across the country, the AAP leader asked Modi to shed "arrogance" and withdraw the scheme that has led to a severe cash crunch.

He said, "If he (PM Modi) is really serious about the issue, then he must take strict action against his corporate friends."

He also called for an apology from the PM for the language he used in his Panaji speech on Sunday. He said, "Also, I felt sad hearing the kind of language PM used against people who stood in queues; he has mocked the people and must apologise."

"We demand that the Govt must take this issue seriously and must come with a solution to deal with the law and order situation," he said.

On Sunday, PM Modi addressed a crowd in Panaji, Goa and called for support from people over his actions to take down black money hoarders.

He warned the black money hoarders that they should be wary of future action.
