“The ghost of note ban is back to haunt people. Cash crunch is back and ATMs are empty. Modiji misled Parliament and the nation,” he alleged.

“The question that we will pose is that 100 days have passed since demonetisation which has claimed over 100 lives, but how much black money has been unearthed?” Pandey said, adding AAP MLAs and workers party will raise these issues with the traders and people at large.

Pandey also wondered why BJP was “not canvassing” for votes in Uttar Pradesh projecting demonetisation as one of its achievements.

“The people of Uttar Pradesh will hand BJP and Modi a major drubbing in the claimed,” he said.
