VH observes silent protest against note ban
Nanganuru: Senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao staged a silent dharna (mouna deeksha) while tying the black ribbon to his mouth before the Syndicate Bank located at Palamakula village in Nanganuru mandal in Medak district on Thursday demanding the State and Central governments to address the currency problems of the people.
Speaking to the media earlier, VH alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was roaming here and there while skipping Parliament session. Since the Prime Minister was not in a position to answer the questions raised by AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, Modi was not attending the House.
He also questioned Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who opposed demonetisation of big notes in the beginning, to answer as to why he stopped criticizing the Centre after visiting the national capital. He said the people were facing severe problems with the demonetization of big notes and the Prime Minister would have known had he visited rural areas, the Congress leader said.
In Hyderabad, Telangana Congress Legislature Party leaders have demanded that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao give an explanation to the people on demonetization of big notes. The Congress MLAs asked KCR, who first opposed the demonetization of big notes, to tell as to what was the secret behind his extending support to the demonetization of big notes. -NSS
