Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has again lashed out at the demonetisation move and said that the woes of people suffering from its effects were not being heard in Parliament.

“We are not against the move to stop black money. Our only concern is that common people should not suffer. However, the problems are increasing day by day. It is unfortunate that people’s voice is not being heard in Parliament,” Thackeray said at a press conference in Delhi. Thackeray, who is in the national capital, was slated to meet Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

He also stated that his party would agitate if people’s sufferings continue after December 30. “Let’s wait for the 20 days, people will have something to say about it. We will talk about our stand after these 20 days,” he said.

He also said that the Sena was not a part of the demonetisation move. “We are not economists. Economists such as Dr Manmohan Singh and Amartya Sen have opposed the demonetisation decision. They said the decision was wrong. So should we say that their degrees are bogus,” he said.

Reacting to senior BJP leader L K Advani’s displeasure over non-functioning of Parliament, Thackeray said his opinion in this matter should be heeded. “Advaniji is an experienced leader and oldest among us all. The government should take his opinion seriously,” he said.
