Cash-starved people lost faith in govt: Shabbir Ali
Meanwhile, leader of Opposition in the Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir said Modi’s ‘demonetization gimmick’ has bled the common man and caused chaos and insecurity in the country. As there was no relief to the common man even after 20 days, the disillusioned people have lost faith in both the Modi and KCR governments, he said.
Participating in a protest demonstration before the RBI office in Hyderabad on Monday as part of the “Aaakrosh Day” protest call given by the AICC, Shabbir Ali said the people had lost confidence in Modi’s statements and were hesitating to accept the new Rs 500 and Rs 2000 notes. He also alleged the new notes have printing mistakes.
Shabbir Ali also assailed Chief Minister KCR for remaining silent to the suffering of daily wage earners, petty traders and women, who were all driven to stand before banks and empty ATMs. The Chief Minister has miserably failed to hammer out a solution in spite of his three meetings with the Prime Minister, Shabbir Ali said.
TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly K Jana Reddy also participated in the protest and handed over a memorandum to the Regional Director of RBI on the failure of the government to resolve the money crisis.
SEMINAR: St. Joseph’s Degree and PG College, King Koti, is organizing a two-day seminar on “Challenge and Opportunities of Demonetization” on November 29 and 30 in the college. Many experts from different walks of life will take part.
