Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said the action will bring probity in political and administrative works besides reducing the gap between rich and poor.There are some hardships being faced by the people following the demonetisation but this will continue for a short time only as the government is putting in all efforts with full sensitivity to normalise the situation, he said.”Naturally, this decision will result in curbing economic sources of corrupt and terrorists. It will also increase probity in political and administrative works,” Singh said.
The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) organised a massive dharna in Patna today opposing the ban on big notes. RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, addressing the dharna, criticised prime minister Narendra Modi for his decision for ban on big notes. It is an attack on common people, he said.
