While Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to the nation to bear the pain of demonetisation for only 50 days, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday said it might take six months or over a year for the exchange of old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes across the state.

Addressing a gathering after dedicating the Gomti river front project to public, Akhilesh said: “I asked officials how much time it will take to exchange currency notes in the whole of UP. If currency is exchanged in this manner, it cannot not be done in 50 days. It may take six months or probably over a year.”

Without naming the BJP, Akhilesh said those changing “issues” again and again might come up with a new issue before the election. He said they were not speaking on development.

Targeting the BSP, he said anyone who visits Gomti riverfront once will never vote for the party which had put up statues of elephants during its regime.

Dedicating the riverfront to people, he claimed that it was largest riverfront in the country and added that it was eco-friendly and equipped with various facilities.
