Prime Minister Narendra, who is on a campaign trail in election-bound Madhya Pradesh, Friday defended his demonetisation move claiming that only the Congress and ‘one family’ were crying because what they had pilfered for four generations was lost in one go.
“Even an old man who loses his son recovers in a year. Imagine how much they have lost that they are still finding it difficult to recover two years (of demonetisation) later,” said Modi.
PM Modi said demonetisation did cause inconvenience in the beginning and that he has publicly apologised for it. He said that the common man was no longer crying over it and said his fight to take money away from looters will continue.
Modi said demonetisation brought money stashed in beds, sacks and almirah to the banks. “The money belonged to you and it has been used to build toilets, houses, roads and to provide water to farmers,” he added. The prime minister said his fight against corruption would continue.
PM Modi will be addressing rallies at Madhya Pradesh Gwalior next. The state goes into elections on November 28 and as many as 2,907 candidates will be in the fray from 230 assembly seats.x
