Mamata terms demonetisation move as ‘big black scandal’

Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today stated that the demonetisation move has turned out to be a “big black scandal” and demanded for withdrawal of the Narendra Modi-led central government’s decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes.



“This has turned out to be a big black scandal. Hardship for the common citizens and full advantage to the money launderers. I have said this before, but given the way the young, old and everyone is suffering let me again appeal to the Central government to withdraw this ‘black’ political decision which is anti-commoner,” Banerjee tweeted.
