“I would like to know when the sufferings of the people would come to an end?” Chandy asked. The Congress leader added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a responsibility to let the people know when the currency crisis would end.
“People who believed the Prime Minister’s assurance that normalcy would return after 50 days, feel let down as the crisis has not yet been resolved”, Chandy alleged. The agitation was organised by the Kozhikode District Congress Committee as part of the nation wide protest against the demonitisation of high value currencies.
