In an apparent attack on PM Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move and his mobile app survey that threw up favourable results, Shatrughan Sinha Thursday called to get into the “depth” of the issue.  Taking to Twitter, the BJP MP, who has lambasted the central government on several occasions earlier, said that “well-intentioned savings over many years of our mothers and sisters for emergency can’t be equated with black money”.

Sinha, in a series of tweets, said people must not get carried away by “planted stories & surveys conducted by vested interests”.

“Let’s stop living in a fools’ paradise and getting carried away by planted stories & surveys conducted by vested interests. Get into the depth of the subject. Must understand the pain of the poor, suffering, well wishers, voters, supporters & women. Hard earned & well Intentioned savings over many years of our mothers & sisters for emergency can’t be equated with black money (sic),” Sinha said.

A day after he announced an online survey to gauge people’s response to the government’s move on demonetisation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the results on Wednesday which showed that more than 90 per cent respondents supported the decision on all counts.

The result drew immediate response from the Opposition, with Congress alleging that the survey, conducted via an official app of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to gauge public opinion on demonetisation comprised “manufactured questions and pre-fabricated answers by blind bhakts”.
