PM Modi on demonetisation: As the PM Modi has already announced that after demonetization, people would have to face several problems such as standing in queues at the bank and ATMs for getting cash for some days. However, they are facing the same problems when the 50 days after demonetization is almost done.
However, the question is that who is responsible for that PM Modi? Or Banks? Banks are telling they are not getting sufficient cash and Government is saying banks have more than enough money to provide the customers.
Although PM Modi has initiated the move for making India as a cashless economy, but the people is actually getting “cashless” because there is no money in the Banks and ATMs. In such condition, there are several people who have committed suicide across the country just because of Cash crunch. Despite seeing all the incidents happened in the country, the government instead of giving relief made the move more stubborn thinking people would get an advantage of it.
While urging Prime Minister Narendra Modi to public that the trouble of money will be for 50 days, and then, the issue will gradually eliminate. PM Modi from his side took a great decision to curb the black money and hoarder as well, but did the banks follow the instructions given by government? “No”.
