Congress seeks apology from Modi, Jaitley over Note ban & GST

New Delhi, Nov 8: Terming demonetisation and the GST a “surgical strike”, the Congress demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley apologise to the nation for the “mistake”.

Addressing a presser  here, senior party leader Randeep Singh Surjewala along with chiefs of the party’s frontal organisations asserted the “double whammy of demonetisation and GST” was being felt across the country.

“The disastrous demonetisation and unprepared implementation of GST has led to a surgical strike on the Indian economy. It has not only destroyed India’s growth story but also rendered crores of people jobless and caused businesses to shut down. This is why the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister should apologise to the country,” Surjewala stated.

“It would have been good if they had said demonetisation was a mistake, sought an apology and initiated a probe. One’s stature does not go down by seeking an apology but Modi is so drunk with arrogance of power that he is not willing to accept it (the mistake),” he further added.

Congress and other opposition parties are observing November 8 as “Black Day”.

Surjewala said November 8 was the first “death anniversary” of the note ban and also of 150 people who lost their lives while in queues in banks and ATMs.

Comparing  demonetisation to the “note bandi” ordered by Delhi emperor Muhammad Bin Tughlak, he said that it had caused immense misery.

“On the first anniversary of demonetisation, those who looted are celebrating and the common man is mourning loss of livelihood and food,” Surjewala asserted.
