Lucknow: Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) chief Mayawati today said the BJP was not bothered about the problem faced by the common people due to currency demonetisation.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said during a media interaction that people of the state and the country were facing economic anarchy because of the ill-planned decision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

She further added, “The poor, marginalised, the downtrodden and labour class is suffering, standing in long lines, unable to draw their hard earned money and the BJP leaders are not bothered as they have managed to exchange their old money to new currency.”
