Day 8: No respite for common man
Hyderabad: The travails of the common man continued even on the eighth day of the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes by the Centre. Serpentine queues of people were seen at all the bank branches in the twin cities on Wednesday as political protests continued.
Angry people were heard hurling choicest abuses at the Union Government and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for the demonetization without making adequate arrangements to see that the people are not put to hardships for days together. They said they were not against demonetization and dealing with those having black money, but it was not fair and proper on the part of the government to make hasty announcements and put the people to sufferings.
Some of the people said that they had to forego their daily work to get their old notes exchanged, as it is taking time. They said that in many of the banks, no additional staff was pressed into work to attend to the people fast.
