On November 17, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee held a public meeting at Azadpur Mandi, where the two lashed out at the Centre for the demonetisation drive started by the Centre against corruption and black money.

“How much currency needed? How much printed? What is capacity? How many more days will it take? Myself and Mamtadi at RBI to get this info,” Kejriwal tweeted. “Our main apprehension is shortage of currency. We are here to check whether there is enough cash to disburse among the people,” said Banerjee.
The two threatened to intensify their agitation if the government did not roll back its decision to discontinue old currency notes in three days. “If you have courage, send us to jail or shoot us…But we will continue fighting. If you have courage, send us to jail or shoot us…But we will continue fighting,” said the Trinamool Congress chief.
