Bhopal, Dec 27, 2016: Former CM of Madhya Pradesh Babulal Gaur launched a scathing attack on government’s demonetisation move by saying that the decision caused inconvenience to the public.
Gaur said, “Pehle vote ke liye khada kia, ab note ke liye.” (At first people were made to stand for votes and now for notes).
BJP veteran was also seen talking about Government’s initiation of Swach Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Campaign). While the context of the conversation is unclear, but the attitude of the minister might not be taken in the same ‘spirit’ that he did.
The minister’s remark has come at a time when even after 45 days of it being implemented, the hardship of the people has not eased, owing to long queues in banks and ATMs.
