- The scrapping of ₹500 and ₹1000 notes will hit Indian economy, said Congress leader Manish Tiwari
- The move will affect agriculturists, he said
- PM Modi’s move is also opposed by the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee
While Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched a war against corruption and black money which are widely prevalent in the nation, his action is being flayed by opposition parties and more particularly, Congress leader Manish Tiwari.
Of late, Tughalq’s soul seems to have crept into the body of Modi. In India, 65% of the population is dependent on agriculture, and by this move of the Centre, agriculturists and farm labourers are severely hit. This Tughlaq style of functioning would mar the overall economy of the country, and the Union government should reconsider this decision, he said.
Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal also called upon the Centre to withdraw this decision in her tweet.
