New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today stated that India will emerge like gold from this demonetisation fire subsequent to the government’s decision to demonetise high value currency notes.

The Prime Minister further backed his demonetisation move and stated: “Just like gold we will emerge glowing from this fire. The main reason behind this confidence is our people.”

“I had said it will take about 50 days for the situation to normalise. It is not easy to get rid of the 70-year-old problem” of corruption and black money, he emphasised.

“Your support despite severe problems touched me. You have not wavered despite efforts to misguide you,” he added.
