You may have seen or heard in news about Anil Bokil, he is the man who had suggested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to demonetize of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. However, in the latest interview, he revealed that this is not what he wanted and his proposals are not completely accepted which has become the cause of the chaos. He even demanded the withdrawal of Rs 2000 currency.
Government accepted a few suggestion of Anil Bokil
Anil Bokil, who is the founder of Arthakranti Pratishthan, a government program in Pune, said that the central government had accepted only three of the five measures he suggested in an interview with Economic Times. Praising PM Modi, he said he is a good leader but the current demonetization is not as per our proposals.
“The government has only replaced large denomination currencies with even larger notes,” the 52-year old said.
Bokil suggested to the government, especially PM Modi several beneficial things which could be fruitful for the BJP and for the nation. These were the reforms suggested by him:
- A complete abolition of all taxes
- An imposition of a bank transaction tax which would be imposed on every deposit made in a bank
- No tax on cash withdrawals
- All currency notes that are above Rs 50 should be withdrawn
- All cash transactions should be limited and the cap should be Rs 2,000
He said they had suggested for the withdrawal of Rs 2000 instead of its replacement. He also said that the government should not have banned it in one go and they had a better transition plan.
“They have lost transition plot completely. They should have stuck to our transition plan at least.” He quoted to Economic Times. He called the government decision as “an operation without using anesthesia” and also claimed that this was a great solution if the government had followed their proposal.
