Appreciating the government’s decision to scrap currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 100 from Tuesday, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) president Amit Shah compared the move against black money hoarders as a surgical strike.
I welcome the decision of the government to ban Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes. On behalf of the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP), I congratulate the prime Minister for taking such a courageous step. The fight against black money will continue. Decisions like forming SIT were earlier taken for the same,” Shah said.
It is a great message for those having black money:Shah
Shah further said PM Modi is taking forward the battle against corruption and black money. “I have complete faith on his step against black money is no less than a surgical strike. It will not only be a problem to those keeping the black money, but also give a major shock to those who are indulging the business of producing fake currency. It is a great message for those having black money, he added.
